Guests were treated to a knock-out Broadway-sty le musical review that celebrated the College’s 125-year history of creating new fields and paid tribute to the five honorees. TC students were the focus of the benefit gala, which raised $1.4 million for scholarships

At the 125th Anniversary Gala at the Apollo Theater, Board Co-chair Bill Rueckert introduced a special group of extraordinary philanthropists whose generosity and leadership have transformed the College and set the stage for an even stronger TC. The Campaign for Teachers College will build on the foundation established by these visionaries to launch the next chapter in TC’s illustrious history.
