Each Year, HOBY gathers in the heart of Manhattan to award the Albert Schweitzer Leadership Award to industry leaders in recognition of their philanthropic endeavors that align with HOBY’s mission to “inspire our global community of youth in leadership, service and innovation”.
On May 4th, 2015 Over 330 HOBY supporters gathered at the Plaza Hotel in New York for HOBY’s 57th Annual Albert Schweitzer Leadership Awards Gala to celebrate 2015’s honorees; David A. Fergusson, President And Co-Chief Executive Officer of The M&A Advisor and Steven B. Klinsky Founder and Chief Executive Officer of New Mountain Capital, LLC.

Guests were entertained by the HOBY Choir, orchestrated by long time HOBY chorus volunteer director, Paul Geer and a song by special guest Theodore Lambrinos, whose moving rendition of The Impossible Dream perfectly framed the HOBY experience.
