streak of grown-up Tiger cubs are reuniting to honor their
Julian Robertson turned 80 in June, but a major birthday
party is being thrown in his honor this Saturday night at
Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in Manhattan.
According to an invitation sent to guests, the soiree is
being hosted by Tiger Management alumni John Griffin of Blue
Ridge Capital (with wife Amy); Chase Coleman of Tiger Global
Management (with wife Stephanie); and Robertson's sons Alex of
Tiger Management, Jay and Spencer (with wives Alexandra, Claire
and Sarah, respectively).
The September 29 event begins at 7:00 pm and will feature
"dinner and dancing," according to the invitation. "Coat and
tie" is requested of guests.
It's not clear who will be in attendance, but people
familiar with the party said it would likely include well-known
Tiger Cubs Lee Ainslie of Maverick Capital, Stephen Mandel of
Lone Pine Capital, Andreas Halvorsen of Viking Global Investors
and others who spent time at the famed hedge fund firm and
seeding operation. They also said that high profile members of
the financial and political communities would likely come,
possibly including New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Spokespeople for Robertson, Tiger Management, Maverick, Lone
Pine, Tiger Global, Blue Ridge and Bloomberg declined to
comment. Viking and Van Wyck, the event production company in
charge, did not immediately respond to requests.
Robertson, who is worth $2.6 billion according
to Forbes, knows Lincoln Center well through his
philanthropy. He is a Trustee Emeritus and gave $25 million to
the venue in 1998, creating the Josie Robertson Plaza in honor
of his late wife.
