Emceed by actress Jane Krakowski (“30 Rock”), Citymeals on Wheels’ 33rd Annual Power Lunch for Women at New York City’s Plaza Hotel gathered more than 300 of the city’s most powerful women on Tuesday, raising more than $1.1 million to fund 160,000 meals for homebound elderly New Yorkers.

Honorees included Grace, Chloe and Wendi Murdoch, Studio Museum in Harlem’s Thelma Golden, and architect/designer David Rockwell.

Samantha Boardman, Margo Nederlander and Lizzie Tisch co-chaired the event, where notable guests included attorney Harriet Cohen, Rotisserie Georgette owner Georgette Farkas, Citymeals founder Gael Greene, actress Dana Ivey, restaurateur Barbara Lazaroff, TV host Sandra Lee, chocolatier Mariebelle Lieberman, attorney Julie Menin, author Karen Page, author Betty Rollin, TV anchor Rosanna Scotto, philanthropist Lauren Vernon, and actress Ali Wentworth.

Citymeals on Wheels is headed by executive director Beth Shapiro.  One hundred percent of every Citymeals donation goes toward the preparation of meals for the homebound elderly.  To donate, visit www.citymeals.com/support-us.
