The contribution from Raistone will support 15 family night stays at Ronald McDonald House New York. Representing Raistone at the gala were Qing Fan, Head of Trade Asset Distribution; Lyuba Nochkina, Assistant Vice President of Sales Operations and Enablement; and Wayne Domnitz, Chief Operating Officer.
Ronald McDonald House New York provides temporary housing for families battling pediatric cancer so that children can be close to the life-saving treatment and support they need. Raistone encourages donations to the organization, which can be given via their website.
The fundraiser honored Mastercard CEO Michael Miebach, who serves as a board member at large for Ronald McDonald House New York. Miebach was interviewed by a surprise guest: comedian and “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah.
The other honorees at the Ronald McDonald House New York 30th Annual Gala were:
- Susan J. Beane, MD — Executive Medical Director, Partnerships at Healthfirst
- Albert A. Benchimol — President and Chief Executive Officer, AXIS Capital Holdings Limited
- Dr. Sherrie Maricle — Leader and Drummer for the DIVA Jazz Orchestra & FIVE PLAY
- Michael V. Marrale — Chief Executive Officer, M Science
Raistone is thrilled to see Mastercard’s involvement in such a worthwhile cause, as the two companies have also partnered to accelerate working capital payments to small- and medium-sized businesses, particularly women- and minority-owned business enterprises (WMBEs). This groundbreaking collaboration was recently recognized as one of the best partnerships in fintech.
