Judy and Eric Mower were honored at Crouse Health Foundation’s 41st annual Tribute Evening on Friday, Oct. 6, at the Nicholas J. Pirro Convention Center, The Oncenter. They were recognized for their community leadership, civic endeavors, and support of Crouse and the greater Syracuse area.
More than 1,000 guests enjoyed an extended reception, gourmet dinner, tribute presentation, and entertainment by Atlas. The highlight of this “Civic Pride” evening was the salute to the Mowers. Net proceeds of $400,000 were announced to benefit Crouse Health’s mission to provide the best in patient care and promote community health.
Judy and Eric have been actively involved in numerous civic organizations in the Greater Syracuse area. As Founders and/or Chairs of F.O.C.U.S. Syracuse, Greater Syracuse Chamber of Commerce, Leadership Greater Syracuse, Metropolitan Development Association of Syracuse, Syracuse 20/20, Syracuse Neighborhood Initiative, and United Way of Central New York (to name a few), their extraordinary efforts have positively touched the lives of countless Central New Yorkers. Arts and natural resources groups have also benefitted from their leadership expertise. One of their great passions is their alma mater, Syracuse University, where Judy serves on the Board of Trustees Executive Committee and Eric is a Life Trustee.
Eric, Chairman and CEO of Eric Mower + Associates, has left his mark in the advertising, communications, and marketing world. He has served in leadership roles on state and national industry associations throughout his nearly fifty-year career. An organizational development consultant for over twenty-five years, Judy has helped legions of institutions develop leadership, improve quality or plan for their future.
Tribute Evening 2017 proceeds will be used to support the work of Crouse Health Foundation including purchasing special equipment, underwriting new initiatives, and funding educational programs and scholarships.
