Les Dames d’Escoffier New York (LDNY), which supports women leaders in the food, fine beverage, and hospitality industries, recently awarded $63,000 in scholarship funding to 26 students. A gala was held in their honor at New York University’s Rosenthal Hall in New York, with breath-taking views of iconic Washington Square Park.
The LDNY Scholarship Awards event drew more than 120 people, including LDNY members, award winners and benefactors from major corporations, educational institutions, and food, fine beverage, and hospitality organizations.
“The Awards Ceremony is the culmination of our goal to bestow annual scholarships on talented young women selected for their high achievements and professional goals”, said President Joan Brower. “Since 1977, we have awarded over $2 million to over 1,000 women, to help them become leaders in their chosen fields.”
The theme of the evening, “Scholarship & Mentorship Life Lessons”, was introduced by Dame Marion Nestle, Ph.D., M.P.H., and Paulette Goddard Professor Emerita of Nutrition, Food Studies & Public Health at New York University.
