MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- Mamaroneck High School’s McClain Auditorium was filled to capacity on Monday, Sept. 22 as more than 700 people attended The Center for Continuing Education’s fundraiser, “An Evening with Timothy Geithner.”
Joined by Carol Loomis, a longtime Fortune magazine editor, the former U.S. Treasury Secretary answered questions about the 2008 financial crisis, decisions he made and his thoughts about the future.
The evening marked a new beginning for The Center. As Executive Director Blythe Hamer said in her opening remarks, “Our tagline is ‘Take a different course.’ We are doing that as an organization and we invite the audience to take a different course with us. We have 140 classes this fall including 60 new classes. There is something for everyone.” Funds raised by the evening allow The Center to provide affordable classes to the community. Both Geithner and Loomis mentioned how fortunate they felt to be part of the Larchmont–Mamaroneck community and that their children attended Mamaroneck High School. During the program, Geithner took questions from the audience, which included Mamaroneck High School students. The evening with Geithner was part of The Center’s new “Notable Neighbors” series featuring community members sharing their experiences. The next “Notable Neighbors” will take place Thursday, Nov. 13 with Tony Award-winning Broadway producer Barbara Whitman and Lesley Jane Seymour, editor-in-chief of More Magazine. Registration for The Center’s fall classes is underway. Classes begin Monday, Sept. 29 and throughout the fall. Offerings include new classes in Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction, The Art of the Cocktail, Financial Planning for Women and Job Search Boot Camp; tours of Newark, The Metropolitan Opera House and Chelsea Art Galleries; as well as traditional favorites such as photography, cooking, jewelry making, foreign language and bridge.
