Benefit Dinner Raises Scholarship Funds, Honors Business Leaders
As the world sets sights on post-revolution Egypt as an emerging power in the Arab world, economic resurgence becomes a key target for Egyptians across the globe. Building on this premise, AUC hosted its second annual Benefit Dinner under the theme of Innovation, Entrepreneurship and the New Egypt. The event, which was held on October 18 at the JW Marriott Essex House in New York, honored Perihan Abou-Zeid ’09, Mustafa Abdel-Wadood ’91 and John F.W. Rogers for their innovative ideas, entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to advancing Egypt. More than $350,000 were raised at the event.
