Some of the top names in sports and entertainment gathered in New York City last night to thank Samsung and the country’s largest retailers for working together to raise $1 million for their charities supported by Samsung’s Four Seasons of Hope. Click here for a slideshow of the evening.
Former New York City Mayor and Republican presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani thanked Samsung for helping him and his wife, Judith, to raise money for a new state-of-the-art trauma center at St. Vincent Catholic Medical Center Manhattan, which played a crucial role in caring for the wounded during the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks of the World Trade Center.
“It will cost millions and millions of dollars, and Samsung is helping us with that,” he told a packed house at Cipriani Wall Street. “What they’re doing for St. Vincent’s is wonderful. It will be a great example of what can be done, and I can’t thank Samsung enough.”
