Glenn Close Fetes Pat Mitchell At Elly Awards

Never has the adage “If you want something done, ask a busy woman” so aptly fit the description of the honorees at the June 25 Women’s Forum of New York 2013 Elly Award Luncheon at The Plaza, which honored Maria Cuomo Cole and Pat Mitchell.

Formidable women with paragraph-long rosters of accomplishments, both were honored for their commitment to the Forum’s Fund which was founded by philanthropist-activist Elinor “Elly” Guggenheimer. The fund enables women over 35 who have had their education derailed to finish their schooling and become leaders themselves.

Elly Award presenter to Pat Mitchell, Glenn Close — winner of multiple Emmys, Tonys, Golden Globes plus six-time Academy Award nominee — introduced the award-winning career journalist, film producer and executive as “a force of nature, goddess of networking, passionate advocate of women.. holder of black belt in accessories and coordinated outfits who had the devil-may-care confidence to use a shower curtain as a shawl at a major public event.”
