27th ANNUAL GALA OF THE NEW YORK POLICE AND FIRE

WIDOWS’ AND CHILDREN’S BENEFIT FUND

 

On October 11, 2012, the New York Police and Fire Widows’ and Children’s Benefit Fund held its 27th Annual Gala at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City.  The gala raised approximately $2.4 million with close to 1,150 guests.  Robert H. Benmosche, President & CEO, American International Group, Inc., was honored.       

Line-Up of Stars in attendance included:

Fire Commissioner Salvatore Cassano…Superintendent of PAPD Michael Fedorko…NYPD Chief of Department Joseph Esposito….Rusty Staub…Mark Messier…Stephen J. Dannhauser, Chairman, New York Police and Fire Widows’ and Children’s Benefit Fund…Kevin Parker, President, New York Police and Fire Widows’ and Children’s Benefit Fund…Linda Giammona, Executive Director, New York Police and Fire Widows’ and Children’s Benefit Fund…Live Performances by Grammy Award Winning Artist Estelle and Michelle Cleary who sang the National Anthem…Colorguard and Bagpipers entered the gala with a group of children who are the beneficiaries of the New York Police and Fire Widows’ and Children’s Benefit Fund.              

Gala Co-Chairs:  David L. Herzog, Executive Vice President & CFO, American International Group, Inc. and John Q. Doyle,  Executive Vice President & CEO of Global Commercial Insurance, American International Group, Inc.  Honorary Chairs:  Brian Williams and
Robert De Niro

Once-in-a-lifetime New York City auction items included:

Commissioner of the New York City Fire Department, Salvatore Cassano, provided guests with a ride on the FDNY’s historic fireboat, along with FDNY’s highly skilled Marine Operations, lower Manhattan tour and lunch at the Marine Unit’s firehouse with New York’s Bravest. 

This experience raised $21,000.

Commissioner of the New York City Police Department, Raymond Kelly, provided a tour with New York’s Finest including an inside look at the Forensic Investigations Division, Police Laboratory, Bomb Squad and Firearm and Tactics.  This firsthand experience included training like an NYPD Cadet with New York’s Finest. 

This experience raised $15,000.

Superintendent of the PAPD, Michael Fedorko, provided an insider’s look at history from the top of WTC1.  Guests experience the courage required for rebuilding downtown and share this massive project previously viewed by Heads of State, along with a tour of  the National September 11th Museum and Memorial and lunch with the PAPD Superintendent.

This experience raised $17,000.

The New York Police and Fire Widows’ and Children’s Benefit Fund provides assistance to the families of New York City Police Officers, Fire Fighters, Port Authority Police and EMS Personnel who have been killed in the line of duty.  The Benefit Fund gives financial assistance to grieving families immediately after they lose their loved one.  The Benefit Fund’s goal is to raise enough funds to provide meaningful annual distributions to beneficiaries for the remainder of their lives.

Since the Benefit Fund's inception in 1985 by Daniel J. "Rusty" Staub, the charity has distributed over $123 million to the families of fallen New York City Police and Fire personnel who have been killed in the line of duty.   In 1987 the charity stood by 320 families and by 2012, the same commitment has been made to nearly 700 families.  The need has grown, but the mission remains pure: NEVER FORGET those who put the safety of others before their own.
