The annual Scholarship Fund Dinner conducted Oct. 12 by the Futures in Education Foundation at the Waldorf-Astoria in Manhattan netted more than $1.5 million to assist children in Catholic schools in Brooklyn and Queens. This year's event honored CNBC news anchor Maria Bartiromo, a graduate of St. Bernadette's School, Dyker Heights, and Fontbonne Hall, Bay Ridge. She is shown, at left, being congratulated by Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio. Musical performances were given by students from St. Bernadette's; Most Precious Blood, Gravesend; Our Lady of Hope, Middle Village; Immaculate Conception, Astoria; and St. Francis of Assisi, Astoria. Rosanna Scotto, co-host of Fox 5's "Good Day New York" and a graduate of Visitation Academy, Bay Ridge, was the emcee. Futures also introduced next year's honoree, Chris Mullin, NBA Hall of Famer, and a graduate of St.Thomas Aquinas School, Flatlands, and Xaverian H.S., Bay Ridge. He is seen, at right, with Angel scholarship recipient Christopher Esposito, a Bishop Ford H.S. graduate who attends St. Francis College, Brooklyn Heights. His "Angel," John Loconsolo, is also seen at right. Below, Bishop DiMarzio greets Clarissa Elgarten, of the Futures in Education advisory committee.
