Service Takes Center Stage at
Record-Breaking President’s Dinner
There’s something about reaching out to others that has an energy
all its own. Being good is commendable, but it becomes truly useful
only when combined with doing good.

The 14th Annual President’s Dinner, which brought together more
than 1,150 friends of St. John’s in the traditional venue of the
Grand Ballroom of The Waldorf~Astoria, saw an unmatched outpouring
of generosity that raised $3 million to support student
scholarships. Scholarships for students and service to those in
need have always combined to make St. John’s one of the world’s
most respected universities.
For a few very special people, the call to service has become a way
of life, an opportunity for them to create an investment in the
future by making a difference in the present. Four of these
exceptional individuals were honored with the prestigious Spirit of
Service Award, at the University’s premier fundraising event.
Those honored included Margaret (Peg) LaRosa D’Angelo ’70Ed;
Peter P. D’Angelo ’78MBA, ’06HON, President of Caxton Associates,
LP; William J. Janetschek, Jr. ’84CBA, Chief Financial Officer and
Partner of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts and Company; and James P.
Pellow, Ed.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of the Council
on International Educational Exchange.
