On Saturday evening, November 13, 2021, over 275 guests gathered at the Inn at New Hyde Park to celebrate the outstanding accomplishments of our 2021 Hall of Fame honorees.
Family and friends of Hall of Fame inductees Carlo Acquista ’96, Richard Duggan ’62, James Magee ’71, Richard Schneider ’64, Eamon Tubridy ’85 and Glenn Xavier ’91 were introduced to former classmates, faculty members and coaches, who regaled them with stories of their loved ones, as they reminisced of days gone by.
Cross and Anchor Award recipient FDNY Chief Charles Lamberta ’78 was introduced by his long-time friend and classmate, Michael McCarthy ’78, as a true hero who saved countless lives, and was instrumental in the rebirthing of New York after the tragic events of 9/11.
Mark Boccia ’12, Mark Boccia AP ’12 and Pete Segrave ’81, founders of “Food for the Fearless” and proprietors of Bourbon Street, OSP and Austin’s Ale House, accepted the Cross and Anchor Award in recognition of their efforts in providing meals for frontline workers throughout the COVID-19 epidemic.
