Starkloff Disability Institute’s Max Starkloff Society Party

  • Updated

Supporters gathered at the Clayton penthouse of Harriet Felman, president of the Max Starkloff Society, in mid-June to celebrate the Vistas and Visionaries honorees of Starkloff Disability Institute’s Max Starkloff Society Party, including disability rights leader Judith Heumann, Olympic champion Jackie Joyner-Kersee and Felman, a Starkloff Disability Institute volunteer and board member. Guests were treated to cocktails, food from Lu Lu Seafood & Dim Sum and a video message from Heumann, who was featured in Netflix’s “Crip Camp” documentary – all as part of an evening gathering organized to support the institute’s mission to help those with disabilities thrive.

“The 2022 gathering of the Max Starkloff Society Party welcomed longtime friends, supporters and so many new friends!” says Colleen Starkloff, co-founder of Starkloff Disability Institute. “Ms. Harriet Felman, president of the Max Starkloff Society, hosted us in her amazing penthouse! Jackie Joyner-Kersee, our VIP guest and new friend, toasted the employment programs of the Starkloff Disability Institute … [Heumann] called upon all of us to recognize the value disabled employees bring to the workforce and praised the collaboration that the Starkloff Disability Institute has developed with local corporations to make that happen.”
