Tuesday’s Children Honors Michael Bapis and Connor Dwyer


Tuesday’s Children’s Annual Plandome Benefit is honoring Manhasset resident Michael Bapis and Connor Dwyer this year at their annual event on Tuesday, April 2, at Plandome Country Club. This event is an opportunity to unite together and enjoy an evening of cocktails, dinner, auction and entertainment while recognizing the community where Tuesday’s Children began.
Tuesday’s Children was founded in the wake of Tuesday, September 11, in Manhasset. Since that tragic day, the community has remained bound by the work of the charity, and proudly comes together to celebrate each year. Tuesday’s Children is the leading nonprofit organization providing long-term support to individuals and communities around the world impacted by terrorism and traumatic loss.
Bapis is a managing director of VIOS Advisors at Rockefeller Capital Management. He began his career at Morgan Stanley in 1998, he rose through the ranks quickly and became a member of the Chairman’s Club as one of the top 150 financial advisors in the firm. He earned a place on the Barron’s Top 1,200 Advisors list in 2018. Bapis’ meaningful connection with his Greek heritage has given him the valuable opportunity to give back to the community in myriad ways while focusing on philanthropic efforts to further expand networks and outreach.
Dwyer graduated with a degree in business administration from Villanova University in 2007. He played lacrosse for the Wildcats and was a two-time captain of the team. Following his graduation from Villanova, Dwyer went on to become a platoon commander in the U.S. Marine Corps, focusing on human and counter-intelligence both domestically and abroad, serving a tour of duty in Iraq. Dwyer joined Citibank in 2011 and has spent time trading across their franchise in New York, Tokyo, London and finally back to New York to run the FX Spot Trading Desk in NAM.
Tuesday’s Children is supporting its mission of providing a lifetime of healing for those whose lives have been forever changed by terrorism or traumatic loss and can be recognized in the dinner journal. Tickets are on sale for $175 per person. For more information go to www.tuesdayschildren.org/event/plandomebenefit2019/ or contact Rachel Kramer at rachel@tuesdayschildren.org.
The awards will be presented at a dinner reception in the recipients’ honor on Tuesday, April 2, at 6:30 p.m. at the Plandome Country Club located at 145 Stonytown Rd., Plandome.
