In late September, Past President Alfred W.  Di Tolla was honored posthumously by the Will Rogers Memorial Fund.  The ceremony, which unveiled a plaque in President Di Tolla’s honor, was held on the grounds of the Will Rogers Foundation in White Plains, New York, and was well-attended by family and friends of President Di Tolla, as well as local union representatives and other entertainment industry leaders.  Martin Perlberg, Executive Director of the Foundation and longtime friend of President Di Tolla, was reminiscent of the active support given to the Foundation by the IA over the years, and more specifically, the dedication and loyalty that President Di Tolla had shown for the organization.  IA President Thomas Short spoke briefly, congratulating the Di Tolla family for this honor, and pledging the lA’s continued support of the Will Rogers Memorial Fund.

On behalf of the Di Tolla Family, International Representative Dan Di Tolla thanked all who attended the ceremony, and thanked Martin Perlberg and the Fund for providing this fitting tribute to a man who had dedicated so much of his lifetime to serving others.
