Carole Lee Bergman Award


Humanitarian Excellence

Carole Lee Bergman was an adult I needed when I was young. She was my ‘bubby’, at times when I needed someone to lift me up and when I needed ‘a good talking to’ as any young adult needs; she was there. She was a Breast Cancer survivor and dedicated years to raise funds for the NYC Annual Breast Cancer Walk.
