Barry L. Bobrow, managing director and head of Loan Sales & Syndications for Wells Fargo Capital Finance, will be awarded the National Jewish Health Humanitarian Award at the 40th Annual Financial Industries Dinner on March 16, 2017.

Bobrow will be recognized for his leadership and significant contributions to the community and financial industry.

“I’m greatly honored to be recognized by the Trustees of National Jewish Health,” Bobrow said. “I’m also thrilled to be able to continue in the highly successful fundraising tradition for this dinner, which benefits the amazing work done by National Jewish Health.”

The Financial Industries Dinner gathers some of the biggest players in New York’s financial world for a time of networking and philanthropy. Supporters and guests of the event have long supported the research and treatment of respiratory, cardiac, immune and related diseases at National Jewish Health. Based in Denver, the institution partnered with Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in 2015, creating the Mount Sinai – National Jewish Health Respiratory Institute.

Daniel Cott and Treasurer Dorothy Killeen, both of Wells Fargo Capital Finance, are dinner chairs for the event. Honorary chair is Albert Spada of Santander Bank, who was recognized at this dinner in 2016.

Jeffrey J. McLane, of Bank of America Merrill Lynch and the 2015 honoree, will be inducted to the National Jewish Health Council of National Trustees.
