2017 Feinstone environmental awards honoring community stewards
The 2017 Feinstone Awards

ESF will host its annual Sol Feinstone Environmental Awards Banquet at the Gateway Center at ESF in Syracuse, NY on Thursday, October 19, 2017.

ESF is the nation’s top ranked college dedicated solely to the study of the environment, developing renewable technologies and building a sustainable future. One of the oldest and most-respected award programs in the environmental field, the Feinstone Awards were established in 1976 by Sol Feinstone, a widely-known historian, author and a graduate of ESF. The program recognizes leaders who care for the environment, encourage volunteerism and add to society's understanding of environmental issues and their solutions.

The Feinstone Environmental Awards Banquet is the primary annual fundraising event for ESF, attracting over 200 business and community leaders. 100% of the proceeds raised from the event are used to fund scholarships for students who will ultimately become our future environmental leaders.

For 2017, the Feinstone Awards Committee will celebrate leaders in Central New York who have contributed significantly to ESF’s mission and have demonstrated a strong commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainability through personal and professional endeavors.

We are pleased to announce Virginia C. Robbins and J. Andrew Breuer will receive this year’s Feinstone Award. Both Ginny and Andy have provided long-time service to ESF and to the Syracuse community. Professionally, Ginny Robbins serves as an environmental and energy attorney with Bond, Schoeneck & King, PLLC and Andy Breuer is a principal at Hueber-Breuer.

We would be honored to include you among our distinguished guests and sponsors. Sponsorship and program advertising opportunities are enclosed. Invitations will be mailed in September 2017 for the purchase of individual dinner seats. If you have any questions, please contact Michele Stottlar at 315-470-6683 or mrstottlar@esf.edu.

Thank you for your consideration of support for ESF. WE look forward to seeing you in October.

Sincerely,

Brenda Greenfield
Assistant Vice President for Development, ESF
Executive Director, ESF College Foundation, Inc.

About the Feinstone Awards

SUNY-ESF Sol Feinstone Environmental Awards logo

One of the oldest and most-respected award programs in the environmental field, the Feinstone Awards program was established by Sol Feinstone, a widely known historian and author who was a 1915 graduate of ESF. His goal was to reward people and organizations that exemplified his belief that the best insurance for a free society lay in people’s desire to do voluntarily the things that need to be done for the good of all. The program recognizes leaders who care for the environment, encourage volunteerism and add to society’s understanding of environmental issues and their solutions. The Feinstone program has made more than 100 awards, honoring people from across the United States for their significant contributions to protecting the environment and promoting the spirit of volunteerism. Past award recipients have back­grounds in science, conservation, government, public policy, teaching and the media.
