On May 16, 2011, Abby and Howard Milstein paid tribute to Dr. Howard Jones, a man who they described as their "hero." In honor of Jones' 100th birthday and his breakthrough work, the Milsteins hosted a party at the St. Regis Hotel in New York.
In a room filled with the leading figures in the field of reproductive medicine, the Milsteins encouraged the passing of the torch to a new generation of doctors.

In full voice, and without a single note, Dr. Jones spoke at length about advances in reproductive medicine and praised the Milsteins for their supportive role in those advances. “Thirty years ago, if a couple had trouble having a family, there was about a 50 percent chance that it could be solved. That figure now is 100 percent, with certain provisos. That's really quite a remarkable statement. From 50 percent to 100 percent in a very short period of time. But it could be improved.”
