Linda Rappaport, a resident, licensed real estate broker and Vice President of Greenthal Property Sales, was among the honorees at The Queens Courier and Queens Business Today’s 7th Annual Top Women in Business Networking Awards Dinner.
The event took place on Thursday, April 2 at Terrace on the Park, and American Airlines presented the event. Approximately 700 people were in attendance.
Rappaport was one of 27 women honored during the event. Along with the honorees, “Good Day New York” co-host Rosanna Scotto was recognized as the “Top Woman of the Year” and humanitarian, actor, writer and radio talk show host Malachy McCourt at the “Best Man of the Year.”
“It was a pleasure to be included with so many talented women,” Rappaport said. “I found it particularly satisfying to see so many young women in the audience and I hope it will serve as a reminder to them of the unique opportunities and unlimited possibilities that are available to women in business.”
In attendance at the event were friends and family of Rappaport’s, including several people from North Shore Towers. Greenthal CEO William West also attended the event.
