The Community Mayors for Special Children’s Annual Charity Ball is our major source of fundraising. At the same time, it gives us an opportunity to pay tribute and honor those who have given their time and financial support. Each year four honorees are chosen to be the recipient of the Community Mayors’ Humanitarian Award.
2023 honorees: Vincent L. Petraro, Deputy Chief Mayor, who will receive the Dominick Della Rocca Lifetime Achievement Award (in order to receive this award, one must have previously received our Humanitarian Award). Humanitarian Awards will be presented to Eileen Gregan, FDNY Trail Blazer and Community Mayor, Roman (Buddy) Ducalo, FDNY and Community Mayor, and Teresa Rizutto, General Manager, Port Authority of NY and NJ.
