The fifth annual Cabrini University Visionaries Gala honored awardees Joseph J. Romano, PhD, and Sharon C Schwarze, PhD, Professors Emeriti of Philosophy; Abel Rodríguez, JD (’01) Founding Director of the Cabrini Center on Immigration; and Joan Buzzallino (’66), Trustee Emerita, Vice President, IBM (ret.) and raised more than $192,000.
“My Cabrinian education provided the foundation for my career and my life,” said Board of Trustees Chair Frank Emmerich Jr. (’92) as he welcomed guests to Cabrini’s Annual Visionaries Gala, held this year November 1 at Pomme in Radnor. “The Cabrini experience empowers students to find their passions and to channel that positive energy into creating change, doing good, and Living with Purpose.”
“I believe that everyone who has ever experienced the Cabrini spirit knows what a special place it is,” said University President Donald B. Taylor, PhD. “We’re here tonight to ensure that our beloved institution continues to grow, to safeguard the Cabrini experience for students of all backgrounds, and to secure the Cabrini mission to provide an Education of the Heart for future generations.”
The four individuals recognized with awards at the gala, along with the student speaker, are living examples of that positive energy and the Cabrini spirit.
