Not a Money Call
At the risk of sounding immodest, we’d like to crow a bit here. Westchester Magazine received the “President’s Award” at this year’s Arts Awards presented by ArtsWestchester, formerly known as Westchester Arts Council. The magazine was in good company. Among those also honored at the luncheon, held at the Hilton Rye Town: Jacqueline and Arthur Walker (Arts Patrons), Copland House (Arts Organization), Harrison High School Band (Education), and Frances Sternhagen (actress). “When Janet [Langsam, ArtsWestchester’s executive director] called me, I didn’t know why she was calling, but I thought she was calling about money,” Publisher Ralph A. Martinelli quipped. He went on to say that he was relieved—and honored—that it was to inform him of the award.

The Business of Awards
The views from the Glen Island Harbour Club were stunning, the nibbles satisfying, and the guests, businessmen and businesswomen, seemed in good spirits on the evening of the Westchester County Business Hall of Fame Awards Dinner. It was the ninth such event put on by the Business Council of Westchester. No one wore name tags, so who knew if that man there, nursing a vodka martini, is a bank president or a litigation lawyer? What you did know, though, is that, yes, the business community is feeling a little better about the economy. And certainly the night’s winners were feeling no pain. They were IBM, Divney Tung Schwalbe LLP, Regeneron, Universal Builders Supply Inc, and Nancy Woodruff Ment with the Andrus Children’s Center.
