The Battery Conservancy is honoring The Estée Lauder Cos. Inc. and executive group president, John Demsey, with The Battery Medal of Corporate Leadership at its 23rd annual spring gala.
“The work of The Battery Conservancy to regenerate and conserve the landscape of lower Manhattan is a testament to the transformative power of beauty, something which The Estée Lauder Cos. has always been firmly committed to,” Demsey said. “As our founder, Mrs. Estée Lauder, said, ‘we are only as strong as the communities we work in.’ The Battery Conservancy upholds this same principle, which is why we are proud to support their cause.”
The gala also celebrates the 15th year The Estée Lauder Cos. has supported The Battery Conservancy’s efforts in maintaining The Battery, the 25-acre public park found in Manhattan’s Battery Park neighborhood.
“The Estée Lauder Cos. is an outstanding leader in corporate citizenship,” said Warrie Price, founder and president of The Battery Conservancy. “It understood and invested early in our passion to bring beauty and sustainability to New York’s birthplace park, in the city that gave birth to The Estée Lauder Cos.”
