David Levinson, chairman and CEO of L&L Holding Company, talked about blowing up his garage as a child, which led to his eventual discovery of building restoration, at the Jeffrey Modell Foundation’s 25th anniversary event last night (see photos above). He was named Man of the Year at the “Spring Ahead” event held at American Museum of Natural History. When Fred Modell, who established the foundation with his wife Vicki, introduced him, he joked about Levinson, who is a partner in the New York Yankees, always wearing his Yankees World Series ring. When Levinson approached the podium, he held up his hand showing off the ring. The Jeffrey Modell Foundation was established in memory of the Modells’ son, Jeffrey, who died in 1986 at the age of 15 of pneumonia due to an underlying Primary Immunodeficiency disease.
