George Soros Marries Tamiko Bolton

By: Ellisha Rader Mannering - September 22, 2013

At 83 years old, George Soros recently married education consultant Tamiko Bolton. Bolton is only 42 years old and will make Soros’s third wife. It made Bolton’s second marriage.

The couple had a small wedding ceremony at Soros’s Bedford, New York, estate. Soros bought the estate few years ago from the author of Jurassic Park. The wedding was officiated by Federal judge Kimba Wood and attended by many of the couple’s friends and family members, including Soros’s children.

Although the wedding itself was small, the couple went all out for their reception which was held after the ceremony at Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts. More than 500 people attended the reception including, World Bank President Jim Yong Kim, Hendrik Toomas Ilves, president of Estonia; Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, president of Liberia; and Edi Rama, prime minister of Albania.

Hungarian composer and conductor Iván Fischer provided the musical entertainment for the reception. Fischer is a close friend of Soros and even composed a new arrangement for the reception. It was played by Budapest Festival Orchestra.

Soros and his new wife requested that instead of gifts, attendees make donations to charities. These charities include Global Witness, National Dance Institute, Planned Parenthood, Harlem Children’s Zone and the Roma Education Fund.

Although the couple will likely be honeymooning soon, they did not hint to where they would be traveling. The wedding and reception was planned by wedding coordinator Marcy Blum.
