NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - June 8, 2009) - Nearly 400 gathered at UJA-Federation of New York's Real Estate & Allied Trades Division annual Real Estate Luncheon honoring Andrew J. Singer, chairman and CEO of The Singer & Bassuk Organization, with its Jack D. Weiler Award on June 4, 2009 at The Plaza, in New York City. This year, professionals from the real estate, construction, and allied trades industries, including developers, owners, brokers, attorneys, and investment strategists, have collectively raised $14.8 million for UJA-Federation of New York.

Singer began his real estate career in 1968 as a salesman and solicitor with Ackman Brothers, Inc., where he grew to become the president of the firm in 1984. In 1995, Singer, along with Scott Singer and Richard Bassuk, started The Singer & Bassuk Organization, which provides real estate finance services to owners of major properties throughout the United States, as well as advisory and development services to public companies and individual owners. In April 2008, Singer won the coveted Most Ingenious Finance Deal of the Year Award for the fourth time and second consecutive year.

Passionately dedicated to giving back to the community, Singer has served in various capacities with UJA-Federation. He currently serves as vice chair of UJA-Federation's Real Estate & Allied Trades Division Executive Committee, of which he is a past chair, and served as a member of UJA-Federation's Board of Directors.
