NYCHSRO/MedReview is pleased to announce that our CEO and President, Joseph Stamm, is one of this year’s honorees at the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s Second Annual 9/11 Commemoration Honoring Heroes for Tolerance to be held at Yankee Stadium on August 27, 2017. The ceremony takes place at 11:45am in Luxury Suite #2, followed by the Yankees vs. Tampa Bay Rays game at 1:05pm.
SWC Director Michael Cohen explains the decision behind the award:
“Over your storied career,” he wrote in a letter to Mr. Stamm, “you have truly exemplified what it means to follow in the steps of Simon Wiesenthal and the mission of the center which bears his name. From the boardrooms of the health care industry, to the halls of government, to the issues facing your local community, you have consistently proved to be a fighter for fairness and justice for all, regardless of the consequences, and that is the definition of a hero of tolerance.”
Why Yankee Stadium?
“The Yankees are one of the institutions that help make New York what it is and one of the institutions that helped in the healing process following the September 11 attacks on this great city. It is therefore appropriate that the event ‘Heroes for Tolerance’ be held at Yankee Stadium on the day that we remember the innocent victims of terrorism and the citizens of this country who strive every day to make America a great place,” says Mr. Cohen.
We hope you will show your support for this venerable organization and its honorees who stand for tolerance and diversity in this region and around the world.
