This special event honored a distinguished group of women who show leadership in business and also when it comes to giving back in support of their communities. Ernie Anastos of Fox 5 News joined us for the day as our Master of Ceremonies.

Rikki Klieman, CBS News Legal Analyst, Criminal Defense Attorney and wife of NYC Police Commissioner Bill Bratton, was our Keynote Speaker. Gina Rizzo, VP of Global Client Relations, Herman Miller, was our Guest of Honor and Karen Murray, President of Nautica and Kipling was our Macy's Community Star Award Recipient.
