Mutual of America hosted the event along with Robert Morgenthau and John Catsimatidis. Radio personality Mark Simone told the audience that coincidentally Steve Forbes was the guest speaker several years ago when Simone first spoke at a PAL event.

Robert Morgenthau, former District Attorney for New York City and Chairman of the Board of PAL, greeted guests.  The former DA and this exemplary organization have much in common, both originating in the early part of the last century.  Mr. Morgenthau was born in 1919, while the Police Athletic League’s youth program has been serving New York City’s boys and girls since 1914. Robert Morgenthau certainly has the experience necessary to Chair this remarkable organization.

He was both charismatic and eloquent. He referenced his grandfather who founded Forbes almost one hundred years ago, “He was an immigrant who came to this country from Scotland, one of ten children with a grade school education-like millions who came here he had dreams and ambitions and the opportunity to realize them.”

Forbes also spoke of Americans banding together saying that Americans are joiners and willing to band together in numerous ways to help each other or a cause, this is what makes us a republic and a society.
