PAL's premiere annual gala is an elegant evening of dining, dancing and entertainment, attended by corporate leaders, dignitaries and other VIPs. The event honors men and women who have distinguished themselves in their careers, who are excellent role models for the children PAL serves.

Please joins us this year to honor the Honorable Robert M. Morgenthau, PAL's Chairman for 57 years, as we celebrate his 100th birthday.




The Honorable Robert M. Morgenthau

Robert M. Morgenthau is one of the great Americans of the 20th and 21st centuries.

Of Counsel at Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz for the past nine years, Bob Morgenthau spent the prior 35 years as District Attorney of New York County, conducting over 3.5 million criminal prosecutions. During that time, homicides in Manhattan were reduced by over 90%.  He vigorously prosecuted white-collar criminals as well, becoming the nation’s leading proponent of the state law to combat “crime in the suites.”

As a Naval Officer in WWII, he survived attacks by both German and Japanese aircraft.  The USS Lansdale, of which he was Lieutenant Commander, was torpedoed and sunk by a German torpedo. The USS Harry Bauer, was hit by a Japanese Kamikaze’s 550 pound bomb. Upon his return to civilian life, he dedicated his entire career to public service, spending nine years at the US Attorney’s office, in the Southern District of New York.

Bob has demonstrated his commitment to public service as well as to the importance of Jewish history and its continuity. He was singularly instrumental in the creation of the Museum of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust.

As PAL's Chairman for 57 years, his concern for children from lesser circumstances has helped millions of boys and girls have a more productive life. In many cases, PAL is their only hope for a meaningful and happy future.
