212th Annual Dinner Dance

  • Metropolitan Club

This year the New England Society will be honoring Ian and Shep Murray, Co-Founders and CEOs of Vineyard Vines, with the Reginald T. Townsend Award for outstanding achievement representing the finest attributes of the New England character.

 
 

About Ian and Shep Murray

In 1998, Shep and Ian Murray traded in their Manhattan desks, business suits and ties to found Vineyard Vines.  From that initial credit-card funded shipment of 800 ties which quickly sold out, they now captain 100 stand-alone stores from their headquarters in Stamford, CT and their preppy-inspired line of men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing is sold in specialty, boutique, and high-end department stores nationwide. Please plan to join us in celebrating these successful New England entrepreneurs!
