            On November 7, 2011, the Police Athletic League (PAL) held its 23rd Annual Women of the Year Luncheon at The Pierre on Fifth Avenue at 61st Street in Manhattan.  The annual event honored I. Dolly Lenz, Liza Minnelli and Tara Stacom.  Liz Smith emceed the festivities with Diana L.

Newman were co-chairs.  Special guests included PAL Chairman Robert M. Morgenthau, PAL Honorary President and Police Commissioner, Raymond W. Kelly, PAL Vice Chairman Robert J. McGuire, Rosanna Scotto, Lorraine Bracco, Mary Higgins Clark, Linda Stasi and Mark Simone.

I. Dolly Lenz, Vice Chairman of Prudential Douglas Elliman, has been recognized as the top producing broker in the United States a record seven times and called “New York’s Real Estate Queen” by The Economist.  With over 20 years of real estate marketing and sales experience, she has personally sold over $8 billion dollars in property and has built her own real estate empire, brokering transactions for the world’s most prominent clients and celebrities.  Ms. Lenz is a regular guest on CNBC, Fox News and Bloomberg Television and frequently contributes to various publications including Forbes, The Financial Times and Barron’s. 

Liza Minnelli is a winner of four Tony Awards, an Oscar, a “Legends” Grammy, two Golden Globe Awards and an Emmy.  She was one of the first entertainers in Carnegie Hall’s history to sell-out three weeks of appearances, her seminal Liza with a Z, a Top 20 album, won an Emmy and Peabody Award, and she played to packed houses with her record-setting concert, Stepping Out, at Radio City Music Hall.  She has continued her extraordinary career with concert tours around the world, TV appearances and a return to Broadway in 2008 with Liza’s at the Palace…!  Her latest album, Confessions, was released in 2010She also teaches master classes in acting and singing at The Actor’s Studio.

Tara Stacom, Vice Chairman of Cushman & Wakefield, Inc., has distinguished herself as one of the leading Tenant Representation and Landlord Leasing brokers in the real estate industry since joining the company in 1981.  She ranks among the firm’s top producing brokers and in 2004 was Cushman & Wakefield’s number one broker worldwide—the first woman ever to achieve that distinction.  Ms. Stacom has been responsible for over 35 million square feet of commercial transactions, most notably helping to relocate over 4,000 Bank of New York employees who were displaced during 9/11 within two weeks. 

New York City’s Police Athletic League is the first and finest civilian-run PAL in the country. Founded in 1914, PAL has served the city’s young people for 97 years.  PAL provides recreational, educational, cultural and social activities to over 50,000 boys and girls annually.  It is also the city’s largest, independent, nonprofit youth organization.  For more information, please visit
