New York Gala Targets Funds for Sept. 11

By Staff Reports

A group of top Wall Street trading pros is rallying support to raise $1 million for the victims of the Sept. 11 tragedy.

The effort is part of this year's annual New York City Gala of the American Ireland Fund (AIF) - an occasion that will feature Grammy winners, The Chieftains - at the Waldorf Astoria on May 2. The AIF also raises money to support peace programs and the arts in Ireland.

The tragedy of Sept. 11, which cut short many lives in the trading community, was obviously on the organizer's minds.

The event this year inaugurates the presentation of The Leslie C. Quick., Jr. Leadership Award. The recipient is Christopher M. Kip' Condron, President and CEO of AXA Financial, parent company of Alliance Capital.

The dinner chairman is trading veteran, Robert McCann, a senior vice president at Merrill Lynch. Christopher Quick of Fleet Meehan Specialists, and Brendan Boyle of UBS/PaineWebber, are co-chairmen.

Wall Street pros on the chairman's committee include Ciaran O'Kelly and Robert DiFazio, Salomon Smith Barney, Brian Hull and Edward McMahon, Merrill Lynch, Robert Shea, Goldman Sachs, John O'Donoghue, Credit Suisse First Boston and Denis Kelleher, Wall Street Access.

The American Ireland Fund has raised $150 million since it was founded in 1976.
