Honoring Columbia, Fordham & St. John’s Universities


On Wednesday, November 20, 2013, the Police Athletic League (PAL) hosted its Eighth Annual Real Estate & Construction Luncheon, celebrating Columbia University, Fordham University and St. John’s University for their commitment to New York City’s children and their impact on the urban landscape. The luncheon, held at The Pierre, welcomed over 530 guests and raised $460,000 for PAL.

“We are proud to celebrate such distinguished universities for their significant contributions to the growth and landscape of our City,” said John B. Osborn, President of PAL. “Through their real estate direction, they have transformed and expanded communities surrounding their campuses and, in turn, areas in which PAL’s state-of-the-art youth centers are located. In addition, these model universities have brought the highest quality education to students of modest backgrounds, including countless PAL alumni.”

The event included a special recognition to PAL Graduates of Distinction, including Hon. Luis Gonzalez, Graduate of Columbia University, Robert J. McGuire, Graduate of St. John’s University, John J. Ryan, Graduate of Fordham University and a tribute to War Veteran Vincent McGowan, Chairman of the United War Veterans Council.

Chairs for the Luncheon included Joseph Brancato, Gensler; Thomas M. Craig, Jr., Hines; James Donaghy, Structure Tone; George Lewis, Collins Building Services, Inc.; David MacDonald, Lend Lease (US) Construction LMB Inc.; Louis S. Milo, Milrose Consultants, Inc.; Ted Moudis, Ted Moudis Associates; Terence Mullin, Fidelity National Title Insurance Company; Peter G. Riguardi, Jones Lang LaSalle; Scott Salmirs, ABM; John W. Smith, DBSI, Inc. and Matthew Van Buren, CB Richard Ellis.

            Proceeds from the Luncheon enable PAL to continue to provide academic, artistic and athletic programming to 40,000 young people, ages 2 to 19, from the most challenged neighborhoods in each of the five boroughs, inspiring them to realize their full potential as members of society. For almost a century, the Police Athletic League has been shaping, enriching and improving the lives of children, teenagers and their families. By giving them academic and cultural opportunities that they would otherwise not have,
PAL brings growth, safety and stability to the futures of children and
New York City.

            New York City’s Police Athletic League is the first and finest civilian run PAL, serving millions of young people over the past 99 years. For more information, please visit
