Sennheiser was one of the main sponsors of a VIP reception and award ceremony honoring Jim Koplik, president of Clear Channel Entertainment-CT Music (pictured, in middle), as the MS Connecticut Citizen of the Year. The fundraiser, in support of the National MS Society, Greater Connecticut Chapter, was preceded by a concert by Sennheiser endorsee Sting.

Held at the Oakdale Theatre in Wallingford, Connecticut on Wednesday, March 17, 2004, the Gala began at 5:00 p.m. followed by the concert at 7:30 p.m. The honoree received the MS Hope Award, the highest honor bestowed by the National MS Society.

The MS Connecticut Citizen of the Year Gala annually honors an individual who exemplifies extraordinary business leadership, outstanding civic and community service and a longstanding commitment to humanitarian endeavors. Koplik is a highly respected and accomplished Connecticut leader whom the National MS Society is honoring for his outstanding contribution to the community in the state.

Connecticut's top music impresario, Koplik has been producing concerts in the state for more than 30 years, and currently oversees the shows at the Oakdale Theater, Meadows Music Centre, Mohegan Sun Arena and most concerts at the Hartford Civic Center. The music mogul has produced all of the state's most significant concerts, including The Eagles at the Yale Bowl in 1980, the Rolling Stones in all their Connecticut appearances, Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, Elton John and many, many more.

Most recently, he was instrumental in bringing Bruce Springsteen to East Hartford's Rentschler Field, the new University of Connecticut football stadium.

Proceeds from the Gala fundraiser will provide necessary local programs and services and fund vital research to find the cause, new treatments and a cure for multiple sclerosis. The mission of the National MS Society is to end the devastating effects of multiple sclerosis.

John Falcone, president and CEO of Sennheiser Electronic Corporation comments, "As a Connecticut-based company, Sennheiser joins the National MS Society in applauding Jim for his tireless humanitarian work and community leadership. His contributions to the economic and cultural life of this state over the last three decades are immeasurable."

Multiple sclerosis is a chronic, often-disabling disease of the central nervous system. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, but the unpredictable physical and emotional affects can be life-long. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are giving hope to those affected by the disease.
