David Anthony Pope Named “Best of Westchester” Philanthropist

Westchester Magazine held it’s 18th annual “Best of Westchester” competition, which awarded Westchester residents and businesses titles in categories, ranging from best diners, to best politician.

David Anthony Pope, President & CEO of the Generoso Pope Foundation, was awarded the title of the “Best Philanthropist in Westchester,” for the 2018 issue. David won alongside Westchester County Executive, George Latimer, and Lisa Salvadorini, from News12 Westchester, who won in their respected categories. More than 34,000 ballots were submitted to the online Readers’ Ballot from early December to the end of January.

“It really came as a surprise to me,” David Anthony Pope said in a statement. “I am very flattered, not only for everyone to write me in as their vote, but to also serve in this wonderful community. The Generoso Pope Foundation’s Board of Directors and I have always felt it was important to give back to Westchester’s residents, charities and government. We will continue our efforts, as we have for decades, to bring people together, give students academic opportunities, and to make sure that Westchester maintains to be a beautiful place to live in.”
