Sandy Diamond is a true New Yorker. She was raised in the city and received her B.A. degree in Sociology and Education at Lehman College in New York City.
After raising her two children, she served for the public school system as a pre-school teacher for fourteen years. She later worked in publishing for four years.
In 2003, she joined the American Cancer Society in Manhattan and took on the important role as Volunteer Coordinator for the organization. In this capacity, she has overseen the recruitment training and management of hundreds of volunteers in various capacities.
For the past several years, she has served as a member of the American Cancer Society’s Special Events Committee, through which she has supported high-level society events such as the “Mother of the Year Luncheon,” the “Annual Theater Event” and the “Spring Gala.” She is also an active participant in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk where she has achieved the elite Pacesetter status for two years. One of her deep passions with the American Cancer Society is her commitment to the organization, Hope Lodge, New York City, where she has been a leadership volunteer and donor since its inception in 2007.
She is one of the co-hosts of the Hope Lodge’s weekly tea time event for cancer patients and their caregivers. Her compassion, caring spirit is shared on a daily basis with individuals finding themselves away from home while receiving treatment.
Both Sandy and her husband, Ron, are generous supporters of both the capital and annual campaigns for Hope Lodge.
Sandy and Ron are also involved as volunteers and donors with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, founded by Evelyn Lauder.
Family is extremely important to Sandy. She and Ron have been married for 38 years. They have a son, daughter, daughter-in-law, son-in-law and four beautiful grandchildren, all of whom they adore. Sandy and Ron have their primary residence in Manhattan.
