    This incredible evening brings together top corporate executives and community leaders to celebrate the work of buildOn here in the United States and around the world while raising critical resources needed to support our programs.This year buildOn on is honoring John M. Angelo (Co-founder and CEO, Angelo, Gordon & Co.) and Leon G. Cooperman (Chairman and CEO, Omega Advisors, Inc.) for their incredible support and contributions to the buildOn movement.

    At home or abroad, buildOn’s goal is to break the cycle of poverty, illiteracy and low expectations through service and education. Across the U.S., buildOn empowers urban youth to transform their neighborhoods through intensive community service and to change the world by building schools in some of the economically poorest countries in the world. Since 1991, buildOn has constructed 830 schools worldwide, with more than 100,000 children, parents and grandparents attending these schools every day. For more information, visit
