Today we are delighted to cast a spotlight on philanthropist Gary Greenfield, this year’s recipient of The Nathan Benderson Community Leadership Award. Gary will be honored on Wednesday, September 20 at the Campaign for Jewish Buffalo’s Kickoff Event at UB Center for the Arts.
Established in 1994, The Nathan Benderson Community Leadership Award is given to a veteran leader who has provided exemplary service and philanthropy to the Buffalo Jewish Federation and the greater Jewish community. Born and raised in Buffalo, Gary became the president of his family’s metal recycling business in his 30’s. Over the past 40 years, Goldman Titanium grew to become one of the world’s leading recyclers of titanium metal. The company has also been philanthropic across Buffalo, working to beautify their local neighborhood and protecting the environment through thoughtful stewardship of natural resources. Gary has served many volunteer roles through Jewish Buffalo, including President of Federation, Chair of the UJF Campaign, and Board Trustee of the Foundation for Jewish Philanthropies. Gary and his wife Carin have two children and several grandchildren and split time between Buffalo and Naples, Florida.
Please join us on September 20th as we honor Gary and celebrate Jewish Buffalo in all its rich diversity, as well as Randi Morkisz, the recipient of the Judith and Daniel Kantor Professional Service Award who we will spotlight next Friday. There is still time to register for the biggest party of the year. Visit buffalojewishfederation.org/kickoff today!
