Inaugural Manhattan Power List to honor the borough’s most influential individuals

Honorees from the Brooklyn Power List.

Schneps Media’s Inaugural Manhattan Power List names the most influential individuals in Manhattan and recognizes those named for their continued commitment, impact and influence they have sustained on Manhattan’s existence over the past year.

The special celebration will take place on April 18 at Bryant Park with Cheryl Wills, Emmy award-winning journalist, Spectrum News New York 1 serving as the Mistress of Ceremonies.

The Honorees are from a broad spectrum of the business and nonprofit world and will be recognized for their accomplishments and their commitment to making a positive impact in Manhattan. More than 300 people will be in attendance to enjoy the ultimate networking and celebratory evening.

“We look forward to bringing together Power Listers from Manhattan to celebrate their accomplishments and to connect with like-minded individuals. Nothing is more powerful than connection,” said Elizabeth Schneps-Aloni, SVP, NYC Community Media & Events

The Manhattan Power List joins the ranks of Schneps Media’s naming individuals to the Brooklyn Power List, Queens Power List, Bronx Power List, Dan’s Power List of the East End and the Long Island Press Power List for close to 30 years.

The event is hosted by Schneps Media, publishers of amny Metro, Chelsea Now, Downtown Express, Gay City News, The Villager, Manhattan Express, Caribbean Life and El Correo. Schneps Media is proud to bring together the most extraordinary men and women to connect, support one another, do business and build community.

In addition to the ultimate networking and joyful celebration, the event will raise money for a local cause and 100% of all raffle proceeds will go to the named charity.
