The Seventh Annual CSI Foundation Celestial Ball, in celebration of the College’s 60th Anniversary, raised record-breaking funds through generous donations from guests and sponsors, and matched last year’s record-breaking attendance. The money raised will be used to strengthen student support and advance faculty research, as well as help ensure that CSI’s greatest needs are met. The black-tie optional event, chaired by CSI Foundation Board Secretary Marilyn Caselli, honored members of the CSI and Staten Island communities who have affected positive change. Each were awarded the President’s Medal by Gary Reichard, Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs.  Recipients included Michael Kress, PhD ’69, ’75; Patrick McDermott; and Beatrice Victor. In addition, the Friends of CSI, who are celebrating their 40th Anniversary of service to students and student support, were awarded a proclamation from the President and Provost in recognition of their hard work and dedication.
