- OSCAR'S GOLD STAR: Oscar de la Renta will be honored Saturday in The Great Hall of the City College of New York to celebrate the CUNY Dominican Studies Institute's 15th anniversary. The event will also salute the school's 35,000-plus Dominican alumni, with about 500 CUNY graduates of Dominican descent expected to attend. The Dominican de la Renta will be singled out for his achievements and contributions to the Dominican people and the world at large. One way he has given back to his homeland is by building two schools that incorporate orphanages and day care centers. In addition, de la Renta serves on the boards of The Metropolitan Opera, Carnegie Hall, Thirteen/WNET, UNICEF, The Americas Society and The Spanish Institute.
