The Women of Concern Annual Luncheon was held on Thursday, June 21 at the Pierre Hotel, with two very worthy honorees, Aine Brazil, Vice Chairman of Thornton Tomasetti, and William Moore, Executive Director of the Eleanor Crook Foundation.  Aine, who was born in County Galway, is a leading structural engineer on such projects as the Hudson Yards development on the west side of Manhattan. William is stewarding the rapid growth of the Eleanor Crook Foundation’s resources through nutrition advocacy in numerous countries, including Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Malawi, and Nigeria.
