The UJA-Federation of New York gathered together some of the music industry's top executives earlier today (March 7) for a breakfast to celebrate the build up to its Music Visionary Award Luncheon, which will take place July 12, 2012. The award ceremony will celebrate Amy Doyle, executive vice president, music and talent strategy at MTV, and Rick Krim, executive vice president, talent and music programming at VH1, honoring both with its 2012 Music Visionary Award.
The breakfast marked the beginning of the organization's fundraising drive, which will continue from now until the luncheon, when the awards will be bestowed. The money raised benefits the UJA-Federation's campaign to help fund over 100 health and human service agencies in the New York City area and across the country, with part of the proceeds also going to benefit Music For Youth, a UJA-Foundation intiative which works to give children in New York City access to musical programming.
