RANDALL’S ISLAND PARK ALLIANCE
25th ANNIVERSARY GALA

In 2017, the Randall’s Island Park Alliance (RIPA) will be celebrating a quarter century of progress in transforming Randall’s Island Park into an innovative and exciting destination for sports, recreation, environmental exploration and cultural events. Thanks to the generous support of our trustees, business and community partners we have been able to restore 330 acres of parkland, including critically needed playing fields and world-class athletic facilities, for the use and enjoyment of all New Yorkers – especially our youth.

As we gather to celebrate RIPA’s many accomplishments, we could not be more proud to honor Richard and Christine Mack for their outstanding commitment to providing New York City’s children with a safe and beautiful place to play.

BRIAN SULLIVAN

“Power Lunch” Co-Anchor

Brian Sullivan has been a financial journalist and broadcaster for 20 years.  He is currently co-anchor of CNBC’s “Power Lunch,“ as well as being a frequent guest on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and other NBC properties, including the 2014 winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.  He has been twice nominated for the prestigious Loeb Award.  And as a former rugby player and still fan, he really appreciates all the green space Randall’s Island provides, even if no other sport really compares to rugby.

He joined CNBC in May 2011 and is based at the network’s Global Headquarters in Englewood Cliffs, NJ. Sullivan has more than 15 years of financial broadcasting experience, having served as an anchor at Fox Business Network and prior to that as producer, reporter and anchor at Bloomberg Television.

He has twice been nominated for the prestigious Loeb Award. One for being recognized as among the first financial journalists to highlight the risks of the housing bubble in 2007, and the other for the 2013 CNBC documentary “America’s Gun: The Rise of the AR-15.”

Prior to joining Bloomberg in 1997, Sullivan traded chemical commodities for Mitsubishi International.

Sullivan has a B.A. in political science from Virginia Tech and a law degree from Brooklyn Law School. In 2015, he began a three-year term on the Alumni Board of Virginia Tech.

In his free time he is an avid race car driver with two SCCA divisional championships.
