13th Annual Award Dinner

13th Annual Award Dinner

The President's Business Council Annual Award Dinner recognizes individuals who have achieved excellence in their fields and who have demonstrated extraordinary compassion for others.

Join us on October 9, as we honor and present Ralph J. DiRuggiero '73, P'10, Senior Vice President for Property Management at Paramount Group, Inc., with the University's President's Medal. A veteran of the real estate investment and management industry, Ralph joined Paramount Group, Inc. in 2001 and is responsible for all aspects of property management operations and security. 

This gala has become the University's premier fundraising event, so consider bringing your business associates or pulling together a table of your Scranton classmates. The ballroom is always at capacity with PBC Members, alumni, business leaders, Board of Trustees, parents, friends, faculty and students in attendance.

Since the inaugural dinner, over $9.75 million has been generated for the Presidential Scholarship Endowment Fund, which supports full-tuition, merit-based scholarships for talented students who will become leaders of vision and integrity. Scholars are chosen from among the top students entering the University each year and are selected for their academic excellence, leadership ability and character.
