• We Will See You in 2021!


    Thank you for your patience as we took the time to review our options for the Inner Circle Show. For nearly 100 years, our annual event has raised much-needed funds for local charities. This year, we’re taking a pause to allow our beautiful city to stay inside and #FlattenTheCurve.


    We will not be gathering together to celebrate in person this year, but we know you’ll make next year’s show the best one yet. Meanwhile, your continued support during this unprecedented time allows us to carry on our mission. Click here to support us.


    And stay tuned as we explore ways to provide a virtual glimpse into what we were working on this year!


    Stay safe. Stay healthy. We’ll see you next year!

Inner Circle Tribute for John Slattery

SLatteryStill Attachment #1

Inner Circle members got together Oct. 17 to celebrate the life of our late fellow member, John Slattery (IC’88).

Several members spoke about John, recalling favors or advice he had given to  them, or conversations that found a special place in their memories.  A video of some of John’s best on-stage performances was part of the tribute.

In particular, Hazel Sanchez talked about the 15 years she spent having her newsroom desk next to John’s and how they shared talk about work and family. Polly Kreisman shared stories about being John’s freind and neighbor in Larchmount. Sonia Rincon said she had worked with John for only a short time at WCBS but that she had found a new friend and mentor.  And Henry Goldman, Rich Lamb and David Seifman regaled the gathering with reporters’ war stories about covering mayors, sports stars and even the Pope along side “Slats.”


The Slattery family: John’s wife, Suzie, and their three children, Kathleen, Patrick and Meghan, was on hand and made the evening even more special.
