Our inspiration, Luke Parlatore was a promising and dedicated young man who believed in serving his community and helping others. His numerous contributions to the Red Cross, Vietnam Veterans and Alzheimer’s Foundation were worthy of several personal citations.

The intentions of Luke’s Foundation are to honor and perpetuate a very special and goodhearted young man’s legacy by encouraging community service among Staten Island high school students while contributing to our future leaders and local charities.
