The Wall Street Dinner
Our premier event attracts more than 1,500 financial professionals and philanthropists every year, successfully raising over $20 million annually for UJA-Federation of New York.
At this event, UJA-Federation presents an outstanding leader in the Wall Street community with The Gustave L. Levy Award. The award pays tribute to an individual whose vision and generosity honor the memory of “Gus” Levy, a former senior partner of Goldman Sachs. Levy was a UJA-Federation leader who marshaled the resources of the financial industry for the good of the community.
