Luciani Named 2008 MS Corporate Achiever
NEW HAVEN, Conn. — The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Connecticut Chapter has named Sunny Jean Luciani, a 2008 MS Corporate Achiever — one of only 18 leaders within the New Haven region to be so named.
A resident of New Haven, Conn., Luciani is an active community volunteer and holds a strong passion for helping others within her area.
“Two of my close friends suffer from the debilitating effects of multiple sclerosis,” says Luciani, a former resident of Woodbridge, Conn. “Currently there is no cure for MS, but with funds raised through the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, it provides hope that scientist will find a cure and no one will ever have to experience the effects of this disease again.”
Luciani is a member of the Shubert Theatre Board of Directors, Board of Trustees for the Hospital of Saint Raphael. Luciani is an active member within her community and is dedicated to helping others, especially the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Connecticut Chapter. Devoted to her close friends, Luciani is involved in helping raise funds to find a cure for multiple sclerosis.
Established by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Connecticut Chapter in 2000, MS Corporate Achievers is a recognition program honoring some of Connecticut’s most influential leaders while at the same time raising critically needed funds to ensure ongoing scientific research, and the continuation of vital programs and services offered by the chapter to the more than 6,000 Connecticut residents diagnosed with MS. Honorees are nominated by their peers and selected by an advisory council board for making outstanding contributions to business, civic and cultural enrichment.
Through participation, honorees join an elite leadership network sharing a commitment to making Connecticut a better place in which to live. Since 2000 honorees have raised nearly $550,000 to help end the devastating effects of multiple sclerosis.
“Ms. Luciani is truly an effective leader throughout her community,” said Lisa Gerrol, Connecticut Chapter president and chief professional officer. “She is committed to raising funds in the fight against MS and devoted to elevating life within the New Haven region, her hometown of New Haven and the state.”
