Jack Biderman's 75th Birthday - Central Park Bench

THE STORY:

Jack Biderman is celebrating his 75th birthday in July 2013. As we all know, he is not the easiest person to buy a present for, but we have a terrific idea...

As many of you know, a few years ago, his close friend Arnie Paster had a bench in Southampton dedicated in Jack's honor.  What better tribute to Jack than a matching one in Central Park!?!   Jack has lived within 1 block of Central Park in New York City for more than 40 years, and walks there frequently, often with his beloved dog.   With your help, there will now be a bench with his name on it for him to visit!  Through the Central Park Conservancy's Adopt-a-Bench program, we are hoping to adopt a bench in his name, and invite you to contribute to this effort as your birthday gift to Jack.  The cost of the bench is $7,500. This terrific program helps preserve the Park, and contributions are tax deductible.

Our plan is to surprise him on his birthday (July 17) by walking to his bench and toasting him there among family and friends.  We will present him with a scroll listing the names of all who have participated in this effort.  

Thank you in advance for your generous contributions.

 

David, Pam & Isabel
