Honoring The Actors Fund

On Monday, March 23rd, The Hundred Year Association of New York will honor The Actors Fund with its Richard A. Cook Gold Medal Award.

Since its founding in 1882, The Actors Fund has aided workers in the entertainment industry. Early advocate Harrison Grey Fiske, editor of the New York Dramatic Mirror saw a need for change within the profession and immediately began the campaign for the “Actors Fund.”

Since its beginning, The Actors Fund has established a number of supporting programs and initiatives to enrich the entertainment community: helping found Broadway Cares in 1988 to help people in the industry affected by AIDS, opening The Dorothy Ross Friedman Residence in 1996 to provide affordable housing and launching programs like Looking Ahead in 2003 which help young professional performers and their families thrive amid the unique challenges of working in the entertainment community.

“The Actors Fund is a great collaboration of many incredible people.”

The Fund supports people in film, theater, television, music, opera and dance, as well as those who work behind the scenes. The organization has served as a safety net for on-stage and back-stage workers across America.

This year’s event will honor the tremendous accomplishments of The Actors Fund and their impact on the entertainment industry past and present.

The 80th Gold Medal Award will be presented  to Brian Stokes Mitchell, Chairman of The Actors Fund. You can show your support and  purchase tickets by returning  a reply card or by using Eventbrite.

This year’s contributions will be supporting some of our major programs; The E. Virgil Conway Scholarship and the Isaac Liberman  Public Service Award Program. Each year the Hundred Year partners with our members and the NYC Department of Citywide Administrative Services to  recognize the accomplishments of civil servants and college scholars within our communities.

The Hundred Year has granted college scholarships based on academic excellence, community service and financial need. It has recognized career New York City employees for dedication well beyond their job description, improving efficiency and quality of service to New York City residents. Throughout its programs the Hundred Year has distributed more than $1.5 million in awards to dedicated community leaders and scholars.

Here are a few words  from the 2014 class of scholars and award recipients:

“I consider myself very fortunate to have crossed paths with the Hundred Year Association and to have the blessing of benefiting from the donors’ generosity over the years.
-Bryant Ly

 

 


“After I graduate from the University of Pennsylvania this year, I plan on attending graduate school to study public health and learn how to increase access to health services for all New Yorkers. Because of this scholarship, I will also be able to save up more resources for graduate school.”

-Victoria Ng

Being a recipient of the Issac Liberman Public Service Award gave me a sense of fulfillment, I was finally recognized for my work on and off duty. It truly means the world to me and makes me want to continue my volunteer efforts for as long as I can.  I cannot thank the association enough for honoring me with such a prestigious award.”
-Mohammad Akram

With your support we can continue to impact the lives of the leaders and scholars who have made such a difference in our communities.
