Previous Tribute Dinners
Last year, the council is honored Geoffrey T. Boisi, '69, P'11, Chairman and CEO, Roundtable Investment Partners, LLC. Mr. Boisi was awarded the President's Medal for Excellence in recognition of his exceptional career, as well as the personal and professional contributions he has made to society. More than 1,000 alumni, parents, and friends of Boston College gathered at the Waldorf=Astoria on April 25, 2013 for the 25th anniversary year to support the Presidential Scholars Program.
Over the past 25 years, the Tribute Dinner has raised more than $20 million for the Presidential Scholars Program at Boston College. Through this program, Boston College is able to attract the best and brightest students from around the world. Your generosity helps more than 250 students participate in extraordinary service programs and continue to carry the Jesuit ideal of "men and women for others" into their post-graduate careers. In addition to their accomplishments at BC, many of these students later become recipients of the nation's most prestigious academic awards, including Rhodes, Marshall, Winston Churchill, Truman and Goldwater Scholarships, as well as Fulbright and Jacob K. Javits Fellowships.
