United Way to Host Golf Outing Recognizing Joseph D. Roberto

United Way of Westchester and Putnam (UWWP) is hosting its annual Day of Golf event, presented by Liberty Mutual Invitational, honoring Joseph D. Roberto at Scarsdale Golf Club on September 12. 

Joseph D. Roberto is chairman, president and chief executive officer of PCSB Bank, a $2.0 billion commercial bank headquartered in Westchester County, New York, a position he has held since 2012. Born and raised in Mt. Vernon, Roberto’s professional banking career spans more than 48 years in various financial management and executive positions for other financial institutions. Before joining PCSB Bank, Roberto began his career at Yonkers Savings and Loan Association and served as chief financial officer until its sale in 2002. 

The course is almost sold out and the Day of Golf event includes a shotgun start, a round of golf with contests and prizes, silent auction, cocktails, and culinary delights.  

United Way is celebrating Roberto for supporting various non-profits and community fund raising events. Through his leadership, PCSB Bank and its employees are committed to understanding the needs of the local communities they serve. The bank established the PCSB Community Foundation, in connection with its 2017 stock conversion which has provided over $1.5 million in grants and sponsorships to non-profit organizations since that time.  Roberto pledges that the charitable organization will continue to support life-changing organizations that have a profoundly positive impact on the daily lives of so many residents in the Lower Hudson Valley. Roberto is actively involved in various organizations in both Putnam and Westchester counties, currently serving on the boards of the Putnam Economic Development Committee, the Putnam Hospital Center Foundation, the Westchester County Association, the Boys and Girls Club of Mt. Vernon, the Corporate Council of St. Christopher’s Inn and 2022 Benefit Committee for Volunteer New York. Roberto is also actively involved with the American Heart Association and is past chairman of its Putnam/Westchester Heart Walk. 

The funds raised from the Day of Golf will support UWWP’s programs and initiatives. Last year, UWWP distributed over $6.2 million worth of essential goods and 790,000lbs of free groceries to households in Westchester and Putnam Counties; provided more than 270,000 referrals around basic human needs through its 211 Helpline; administered more than $700,000 in grants to local nonprofits; and so much more. In total, UWWP invested or leveraged more than $24.2 million to help more than 353,000 families in our community. 

“I’m incredibly proud to be recognized by an organization like United Way,” Roberto said. “They do so much for the community and I’m looking forward to spending the day on the golf course to support such an important cause.”
