Social gridlock reigned when City College hosted its inaugural Spring Forward! gala, with 300 guests raising more than $400,000 for the work of the college’s foundation, headed by the ubiquitous Geoff Green.

The college’s culinary arts, music, and art departments all played key roles, with surprise guest Michael McDonald joining the college’s New World Jazz Ensemble for an exhilarating performance.

The fab fest, co-chaired by Morrie and Irma Jurkowitz, Sara Miller McCune, and Lee Luria, was held in the cavernous sports pavilion, decorated in silver and grey, with blue uplighting, by Montecito events whiz Merryl Brown.

Among the host of supporters were Kandy Luria-Budgor, Madeleine Jacobson, Robyn Freeman, Maryann Schall, Hannah-Beth Jackson, Monique Limon, Frank and Leslie Schipper, Kerri Murray, Kerilee Gore, John and Christie Glanville, Ashley and Kyle Hollister, Darrell and Kristin Becker, Earl and Leslie Armstrong, Scott and Rachel Vincent, and Howard and Susan Silver.
