On Wednesday, December 11, 2013, the Police Athletic League (PAL) hosted its 25th Annual Women of the Year Luncheon, honoring Erica Jong, Hon. Jeanine Pirro, Barbara Tober and Wendy Williams. The luncheon, held at The Plaza, welcomed 300 guests and raised $350,000 for the nonprofit. The event was emceed by Judy Gold and was chaired by Margo Catsimatidis, with Honorary Chair Amelia Bernstein.

Special Guests at the event included Robert M. Morgenthau, Raymond W. Kelly, John B. Osborn, Rosanna Scotto, Barbara Taylor Bradford, Pamela J. Newman, Diana Taylor, Veronica Kelly, Melania Trump, Karen E. Burke, M.D., Ph.D., Mark Simone and John Catsimatidis.

Erica Jong is a Poet, Novelist and Essayist whose works have been influential all over the world. Her first novel, Fear of Flying, sold over 27 million copies and celebrated its 40th Anniversary with new editions in many languages. Erica is the author of seven widely honored volumes of poetry, eight novels and seven non-fiction books.

Hon. Jeanine Pirro is a highly respected District Attorney, Judge, politician, author and TV personality.  As assistant DA in 1978, she headed one of the first domestic violence units in the nation, and was the first female to prosecute a murder case in Westchester County. She won that and every case thereafter. Jeanine was elected County Judge and served as the first female DA of Westchester. Judge Pirro won an Emmy in 2011 for her own syndicated TV court show, and now hosts “Justice with Judge Jeanine.”

Barbara Tober, Chairman, Global Leadership Council, is President of Acronym, Inc.

Barbara spent 43 years in publishing and advertising, most notably as Editor in Chief of Bride’s Magazine.  She is the author of The Bride: A Celebration.

Wendy Williams, Host of The Wendy Williams Show, was named one of the “35 Most Powerful People in Media” by The Hollywood Reporter in both 2012 and 2013.
