For more than two recent decades, the top contributors to the UJA-Federation of New York’s annual campaign would gather one evening every fall at a handsome Upper East Side apartment for the drive’s kickoff. Alan “Ace” Greenberg and his wife Kathryn would stand at their door, welcoming guests to what came to be known as “the Greenberg event,” a combination cocktail party and fundraiser that every year raised tens of millions of dollars and set the tone for the next months of solicitations for the philanthropy.

Alan “Ace” Greenberg, a native of Oklahoma City who made his fortune here, was a generous contributor to UJA-Federation.
