Mitch Rudin, chief executive officer of Mack-Cali Realty Corporation, will be the official honoree at the 2016 Real Estate Award Reception and Pynes Putting Challenge to benefit the March of Dimes New Jersey Chapter.
This year’s event will take place on Thursday, June 16, 2016 from 4:30 to 9:00 p.m. at the United States Golf Association (USGA) Headquarters, 77 Liberty Corner Road in Far Hills.
“For 16 years, the Real Estate Award Reception has provided an elegant forum for the March of Dimes to raise awareness about its work while honoring an outstanding real estate industry leader for their contribution to maternal and infant health,” said Carol Roberts, director of special events for the March of Dimes North Jersey Division.
“When Mr. Rudin graciously agreed to be the March of Dimes honoree, we wanted him to see first-hand what the March of Dimes does. Mr. Rudin toured the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at The Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, New Jersey to observe the infants. He exuded a sense of warmth, caring and compassion as he talked with doctors about their care for these children. We are delighted to have Mr. Rudin as our 2016 honoree, a man well respected within both the industry and his community, and as a wonderful supporter of the March of Dimes mission,” added Roberts.
The March of Dimes is a nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. With chapters nationwide, the March of Dimes works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
The Real Estate Award Reception, which has been recognizing industry leaders since 2000, brings together approximately 250 professionals from New Jersey’s real estate community and affiliated organizations, including senior executives, brokers, managers, architects, developers, owners, engineers and related industry leaders. The evening includes networking, a short program and the opportunity for attendees to view the USGA Museum’s many exhibits.
“The March of Dimes mission to create a world of stronger, healthier babies resonates across the globe,” said Rudin. “After my recent visit to the NICU, I am so impressed by the work they are doing, their 75 years of research, education and tireless advocacy efforts. I’m honored to be recognized by this tremendous organization.”
