John Giordano and Yasmina Marcelle Moukarzel


We are happy to share the news of the wedding of John Giordano and Yasmina Marcelle Moukarzel, who were married on September 30, 2017.

In lieu of wedding gifts, John and Yasmina ask that contributions be made to a permanently restricted endowment fund of The Scholarship Foundation of The Union League of Philadelphia.  This fund will provide an annual scholarship to a deserving student from the Philadelphia region to enable their pursuit of higher education.

The first scholar from this fund was awarded in May 2018, with a scholarship to Emanuel Martinez, a graduate of Rancocas Valley Regional High School NJROTIC. Emanuel is now pursuing his degree in international relations from The College of New Jersey.

About the Scholarship Foundation

Each year, 300 high school juniors from the Greater Philadelphia region receive the Good Citizenship Award. In their senior year, the awardees are invited to apply for a Union League Scholarship to assist with their pursuit of higher education.  Since 1955, over 1,000 students have received financial assistance, totaling approximately $4 million in scholarship aid.

In 2017, the Scholarship Foundation granted scholarships to eight outstanding young men and women.  These students demonstrate the qualities that have guided the Union League for over 150 years – character, leadership, service and love of country.  In addition to the grants, Union League Scholars receive skills workshops, mentoring opportunities and unique cultural opportunities.  These programs provide the additional education to these young men and women that is not provided in the academic atmosphere.  These programs work to create a community among the Scholarship recipients, and integrate them within the Union League community.
