The College of Staten Island’s Celestial Ball: Reaching for the Stars,will take place on Saturday, April 13, 2013 at the Richmond County Country Club.
This year’s honorees include Robert Cutrona, Sr., President, Project One Services; Norma D;Arrigo, Community Leader; and Dr. Alfred Levine, Professor, Engineering Science and Physics, and Director, Center for Environmental Science, College of Staten Island.
The goal of the Celestial Ball is to raise much-needed funds to benefit all aspects of the College, from student and faculty support through infrastructure and everyday needs. Although the College is a publicly funded institution, the percentage of state funds in the institution’s budget has been severely reduced in recent years in the face of trying economic times. The need for private support, as a result, is critical.
This year’s Committee Chair is Marilyn Caselli, Senior Vice President for Customer Operations, Consolidated Edison, Inc., and a member of the CSI Foundation Board of Directors, and the Honorary Chairs are the Hon. Rita DiMartino, Trustee of The City University of New York, and the Hon. Kathleen Pesile, Trustee of The City University of New York and Principal Owner, Pesile Financial Group.
Tickets to the black tie-preferred event cost $250 per person, $150 of which is tax deductible. Responses are requested by Friday, March 29, 2013.
