EX-NYC MAYOR

GIULIANI HELPS LAUNCH CU-COLORADO SPRINGS SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

COLORADO

SPRINGS, COLO — Former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani will talk

about his experiences and those of other New Yorkers following the Sept.

11 attack on the World Trade Center as part of a scholarship fund raising

effort for students at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs.

Giuliani, Time magazine’s

2001 Person of the Year, will be the speaker for an August 25 event

at the Broadmoor Hotel’s International Center to benefit the Reach Your

Peak Scholarship Fund at CU-Colorado Springs. This inaugural lecture

is named in honor of community leaders Mary Ellen and Michael McNally.

Tickets for the

event are $250 and include dinner. Corporate tables are also available.

For more information, contact the CU Foundation, 262-3465.

Giuliani, New York

City’s 107th mayor, was a high-profile leader of the nation’s largest

city prior to the events of Sept. 11. But it was his leadership during

the crisis at the World Trade Center that catapulted him into the spotlight

as the world’s attention turned to New York City and the more than 2,000

victims of the World Trade Center attack. Giuliani will talk about his

initial reaction to the attack, his activities following the attacks,

and will offer his predictions for New York’s and America’s future.

The lecture series

is named in recognition of the community contributions of Dr. Michael

and Mary Ellen McNally, Colorado Springs. Michael McNally practiced

as a neurological surgeon for more than 35 years and served on the boards

of directors for many medical and community-related organizations. Mary

Ellen McNally held elected positions to the Colorado Springs City Council

and Colorado Springs School District 11 in addition to leadership positions

with the American Red Cross, United Way and the Colorado Springs Symphony.

Sponsors of the

lecture series include: patron sponsor, El Pomar Foundation; underwriting

sponsors, Western National Bank, Hill Development Corporation, Gay &

Lesbian Fund, CU-Colorado Springs Student Government Association and

Dr. Michael and Mary Ellen McNally; gold sponsors, G.E. Johnson; Memorial

Hospital, Penrose Hospital/Centura Health Systems, Bain Family Foundation,

Tim Hoiles and Muir Agency.

CU-Colorado Springs,

located on Austin Bluffs Parkway in northeast Colorado Springs, is the
