This year, the 19th Annual Stars of Stony Brook Gala will be held on April 11, 2018, and honor Dorothy Lichtenstein, President of the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation and a Stony Brook Foundation Board Trustee.
The Gala will celebrate our renowned Stony Brook Southampton Creative Writing and Film program and feature special guests, CBS Sunday Morning anchor Jane Pauley and “Doonesbury” creator Garry Trudeau (illustration pictured here).
Lichtenstein joins a distinguished roster of scholars, politicians, celebrities and luminaries for their outstanding and relentless commitment to society, such as former Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden; Nobel Laureate C.N. Yang; IMAX CEO Richard Gelfond; actors Julie Andrews, Alan Alda and Ed Harris; founder of Renaissance Technologies Jim Simons and CA Technologies founder Charles Wang; and celebrated conservationists Richard Leakey and Patricia Wright.
