Stony Brook University’s 2016 Stars of Stony Brook Gala, hosted by the Stony Brook Foundation, will honor Glenn Dubin ’78, Hon. ’12, and his wife Dr. Eva Andersson-Dubin, and Major League Baseball all-star pitcher Joe Nathan ’97, Hon. ’13, on Wednesday, April 20, at Chelsea Piers in New York City.
Now in its 17th year, the annual fundraiser has raised nearly $40 million to support student scholarships and a variety of academic programs at the University. This year’s Gala will again support student financial aid as well as Stony Brook University Athletics.
Glenn and Eva Dubin are generous benefactors to Stony Brook University; their gifts during the past 10 years have had a transformative impact on student-athletes. Most recently, the Dubins pledged $5 million dollars to build an Indoor Training Center, which will benefit all 20 intercollegiate teams. While at Stony Brook, Glenn Dubin was a member of the football and men’s lacrosse teams, and in 2012 he received an honorary doctorate from the University.
Since entering major league baseball in 1999, Joe Nathan has credited Stony Brook University for much of his successful career. Joe is a six-time MLB all-star and ranks eighth on the all-time saves list. In 2011 Joe Nathan Field was named in honor of his lead gift for the new campus baseball park. In 2013 Joe Nathan was awarded an honorary doctorate in recognition of his exemplary achievements.
The Stars of Stony Brook Gala begins with a cocktail reception on April 20 at 6:30 pm at Chelsea Piers, followed by dinner at 7:30 pm. To reserve tickets, inquire about sponsorship, or for more information, call (212) 245-6570, ext. 15 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
