Upbin, a 1961 Pace graduate, will be presented with the award at a fundraising gala April 29 at the Plaza Hotel. The money raised through the event will benefit undergraduate scholarships, as well as the Center for Downtown New York, which was created by Pace in direct response to Sept. 11 and helps with the revitalization of the downtown area, a university spokesman said.
