Board of Directors Welcome New Members
We are pleased to announce the December appointment of two new members of The Lustgarten Foundation Board of Directors.
Jennie Fortunoﬀ, President of Esterow Events & Consulting, Inc., a full-service event planning company based in New York, NY, is proud to serve on the board in honor of her late husband, Louis W. Fortunoﬀ, who succumbed to pancreatic cancer at the young age of 47, in 2012. Jennie brings extensive experience to her new role having coordinated high-proﬁle political campaign events for former New York City Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, among others. Her non-proﬁt leadership includes organizing and managing events for Barnard College and NARAL Pro-Choice New York. Jennie has been a supporter of the Foundation since her husband’s diagnosis and last year hosted the Louis W. Fortunoff Family Fun Day at Old Westbury Gardens in Westbury, NY.
More than 700 people attended this special event and the day raised nearly $400,000 for The Lustgarten Foundation. Jennie holds a BA in Political Science from the State University of New York.
Anne Glauber is a managing partner and the founder of the corporate social responsibility and social impact practice at Finn Partners, a leading independent PR firrm based in New York, NY. Anne’s work in communications and corporate social responsibility has earned her numerous awards and national recognition for creating new communications models that mobilize private sector resources to address public problems. Her clients have ranged from Fortune 100 companies, to start-ups and nonproﬁt foundations, international associations, domestic and international non-government organizations, and United Nations agencies. Anne is also a member of the boards of directors of several non-proﬁt organizations and an accomplished author, but became a passionate advocate for pancreatic cancer awareness when she was diagnosed with the disease in 2014. She partnered with The Lustgarten Foundation this past November and shared her industry contacts and expertise by coordinating a “Pancreatic Cancer Strategic Awareness Meeting”, bringing together experts in the ﬁelds of public relations, media relations, advertising, branding, social media, and corporate social responsibility to identify new strategies and tactics to raise national awareness and build a sense of urgency among the general public to ﬁnd a cure for pancreatic cancer.
