Nearly 250 people attended the UJA-Federation of New York’s Business and Professional (B&P) Division 2019 Annual Luncheon, held on May 23, to honor Millwood resident Robert Glazer and New York City (formerly of Scarsdale) resident Ed Stoppelmann.
This year’s luncheon sported the theme “Game Changers” and paid tribute to Glazer and Stoppelmann for their outstanding professional and philanthropic achievements. Both honorees are game changers in their respective industries. Glazer, CEO, ENT and Allergy Associates, and Stoppelmann, president, Red Oak Transportation, are both deeply committed to helping sustain UJA-Federation’s network of hundreds of nonprofits.
Chappaqua resident Stacey Cohen of Co-Communications, who chaired the event with Mt. Kisco resident Jamie Schwartz of GHP Office Realty, LLC, explained, “This network is vital to reaching those who most need support—people dealing with food insecurity, disabilities, depression, aging, housing issues and other crises. People rebuilding their lives. That is why the theme ‘game changers’ is so fitting for both UJA’s work and our outstanding honorees.”
The event raised close to $250,000 for UJA-Federation of New York.
Glazer is responsible for overall operations, focusing on physician recruitment, mergers and acquisitions and strategic planning for ENTA’s 42 locations and 200+ physicians in the NY/NJ metro region. He has served as president of the Association of Otolaryngology Administrators (AOA) Leadership Council, and has participated on ad-hoc committees of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNS). He is a board member of the Westchester County Association, a Fortune 500 business think tank and also serves as a member of the NYS Grievance Committee for the Ninth Judicial District.
Under Stoppelman’s leadership, Red Oak Transportation, a third-generation family-owned business, has grown into one of Westchester’s leading corporate and leisure limousine services. Red Oak Transportation has been recognized by many organizations including UJA-Federation of New York, Westchester Jewish Community Services, Bronx Jewish Community Council and Westchester Business Council for contributions and services to the community. Stoppelmann is a former board member and past chair of the Westchester division of the American Heart Association and also serves as a commissioner for the Westchester County Taxi and Limousine Commission.
