$2 MILLION RAISED FOR AFTERSCHOOL YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS
The All Stars Project held its national gala benefit
entitled Big Builders for Young People on Monday, May
7, at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center. Celebrating
over 30 years of success of its innovative afterschool
programs for inner-city youth, the All Stars Project raised
honorees included Bart M. Schwartz, Esq. Chairman,
Guidepost Solutions and Gregory A. Tosko, Vice
Chairman, CBRE Tri-State Region for their work in creating
new possibilities for youth and communities in especially
bold and visionary ways.
Gregory A. Tosko,
a widely recognized real estate professional whose
significant award winning assignments have included the
World Trade Center and The New York Times Company, to name a
few, is a member of the All Stars Project’s board of
directors. Mr. Tosko has played an important role as an
advisor on real estate matters as the All Stars has expanded
and has hosted workshops at CBRE with inner-city youth from
the All Stars, exposing them to the worlds of business and
real estate. In recognition of Mr. Tosko’s personal
involvement, financial support and lasting effect on
thousands of young people, the All Stars Project will
announce the naming of its youth conference room at its
national headquarters on West 42nd Street, the Gregory A.
Tosko and CBRE Youth Leadership Room.
The event highlighted the
upcoming opening of the All Stars’ new facility in Newark,

poorest communities opportunities to work with the best
professionals in theatre, business and education.
