On September 17, 2015, The ACE Mentor Program of Greater New York celebrated its annual Fall Cocktail Event at the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum. The yearly event, now in its 10th year, showcases an exciting new or renovated facility in Manhattan and is an important fundraiser for ACE. Rose Reichman selected this year’s venue and served on the event committee. The event raised over $100K for the ACE program.
This summer RFI had the pleasure of working with intern Emily Palmer who is entering her senior year at Marist College this fall. Emily worked with both RFI and Trilogy Publications, applying her excellent research and writing/editing/proofreading skills to a range of projects. Her favorite: research into a future book for Trilogy, Those Amazing Architects, and development of a preliminary outline. We wish Emily all the best in the year ahead!

Please take a look at the New Year’s message we developed for our long standing client, Lilker Associates. As Lilker begins its 30th year in business, we found an innovative way to communicate how far they have come. This web based animation uses no video and really simplifies delivery across all platforms. Congratulations Lilker!
Five of the nation’s leading research chemists and educators spoke at the third Camille & Henry Dreyfus Foundation Teacher-Scholar Symposium on Friday, October 24, at the New York Academy of Sciences in downtown Manhattan. The day-long program was streamed live beginning at 9:30 a.m.
The Symposium brought together past and present recipients of the Dreyfus Foundation’s Teacher-Scholar Awards, which are granted to talented, emerging faculty in the chemical sciences based on their independent research and teaching accomplishments. Approximately 40 of the most recent Teacher-Scholars presented posters of their research at this year’s event bracketed by feature presentations from four renowned past Teacher-Scholars and a preeminent digital learning expert.
Since 2008, RFI has been working with the Foundation whose mission is to advance research in the chemical sciences and has supported the Foundation with development of a website, annual reports, publicity and a video (www.dreyfus.org and click on photo of Dreyfus brothers).

New Jersey has more highways than any other state in the nation, the Star-Ledger writes, but not all of them are pothole-studded miles of blacktop surrounded by sound walls, billboards and commerce. In fact, some of the most gorgeous stretches of roadways are in the Garden State, from the 3.5 mile Pulaski Skyway, which runs Jersey City to Newark, to tucked away corners like 20 miles on Route 542 in the Pine Barrens. Reporter Pete Genovese lists his favorite 10 scenic stretches, all worthy of a Sunday drive. Travelers take note: The Pulaski Skyway is open southbound only (towards Newark) but still makes for quite a scenic – and exciting – ride.
A great time was had by all at the 8th annual ACE Mentor Program of Greater New York Fall Cocktail Event showcasing 4 World Trade Center September 17.
On a gloriously perfect evening, the 365 degree spectacular views from the 68th floor wowed attendees. RFI’s Rose Reichman originated the concept of these annual fundraisers showcasing an innovative new building in NYC and once again put together last night’s event.
