Momentum Women™ Honor Dr. Paula Moynahan
Throughout the year, CESLIE: THE WOMEN'S NETWORK™ hosts the Company's women's service organization Momentum Womenâ„¢ members and honors a woman with the Momentum Award who personifies the qualities that set the standard for the modern businesswoman. In February, we were pleased to honor plastic surgeon and humanitarian Dr. Paula Moynahan, M.D.
On February 21, 2007 Princess Ann Marie Borghese, Ann Haly, Adrienne Landau, Kalinka, Georgia M. Kaufmann, Linda Tucciarone, Sharon Marantz Walsh and Ceslie Armstrong hosted a private cocktail soiree and toasted Momentum Award honoree Dr. Paula Moynahan, M.D. at one of the most glamorous rooms in NYC: The World Bar at Trump World Tower near the U.N.
For two hours, NYC power women networked, exchanged ideas (and business cards) while enjoying delicious wines selected by Alexandra Elman Singlevich, owner of Marble Hill Cellars, in the absolutely beautiful setting of the internationally famous The World Bar in Trump World Tower. Ceslie introduced the evening's honoree, the elegant, caring, and respected women's advocate Dr. Paula Moynahan with a gorgeous Tiffany & Company engraved crystal award. Dr. Moynahan graciously accepted her award and shared her experiences as a woman entering the field of Plastic Surgery and building a business. Her incredibly motivational words of wisdom and eloquence really touched the Momentum Women members and guests. She introduced a break-through product called Sculptra, that had everyone mesmirized. Paula also discussed her love of animals and the many dogs and horses she has rescued. Her friend Buck Kalinowski, known for his children's book "Cupid's Secret," honored Paula with a book about her that everyone received in their goodie bag. After a rousing applause and picture taking, everyone toasted Paula again!
