Printing Industries Alliance (PIA) has selected Mariano Rivera, baseball great, community leader, and philanthropist, as the recipient of its 2023 Franklin Award for Distinguished Service – the highest honor given to an individual by the graphic communications industry.

Since 1952, the Franklin Award has been presented to former U.S. presidents, authors, artists, journalists, and business leaders. Rivera will accept the award at PIA’s Franklin Event in New York City on Thursday, March 30, 2023.

The Awards gala will take place at The Lighthouse, Pier 61 at Chelsea Piers, located on the Hudson River and the West Side Highway.  The evening includes an open bar, hors d’oeuvres, a sit down dinner, followed by the awards ceremony, dessert and coffee.
