For almost 30 years, Tony DiTucci has worked in the construction and real estate industries. He has served as vice president of DGA Builders, LLC, a construction firm specializing in multi-family and senior housing projects. In one of his first positions, Tony DiTucci was an estimator-project manager for Spoleta Construction & Development Corporation, a construction company cited for its notable buildings.
In 2013, a Spoleta Construction & Development Corporation building earned the Landmark Society’s Award of Merit, which is given for a building, site, object, or structure that exhibits an outstanding preservation effort. The building does not necessarily have to have historical significance, but it should have some significance to the community and strengthen the neighborhood. Buildings under consideration for the award need to have been completed in the previous two years to be considered for the present year, and awards are not given to single-family residences.
Spoleta earned the award for its work on the Bridge Square Building located on West Main Street in Rochester. The firm rehabbed the 67,000 square foot building that once was home to Josh Lofton High School. Today, the building is a mixed-use project that contains both offices and loft-style housing.
A construction and contracting professional in Rochester, New York, Tony DiTucci oversees the construction of multi-family and senior housing projects as vice president of DGA Builders. Outside of work, Tony DiTucci supports charitable organizations including Lollypop Farm.

An interactive Bitmoji virtual classroom invites children to connect with peers, as well as to learn about animals through live virtual sessions with shelter experts.
To support children’s learning, parents can order a Lollypop Farm Camp @Home Kit, which includes a camp t-shirt, a book, and instructions for various DIY activities. For more information or to sign up for Summer Camp @Home, visit www.lollypop.org.

A nonprofit organization founded in 1989, Prolife Across America seeks to establish what it calls an “atmosphere of life” by publishing positive prolife messages. With a grounding in Roman Catholic teaching and the Bible, the organization provides information about alternatives to abortion, such as adoption, and others services to help women choose life and receive practical help to care for their babies.
Prolife Across America spreads its message through the use of billboards. Often these billboards feature the faces of beautiful babies, along with messages such as “Thanks for life, Mom!” or “Fragile: Born & Unborn.” The billboards typically include a specific fact about fetal development, such as that a heartbeat begins 18 days after conception. They also have the organization’s name and phone number so those who view the billboards can reach out for support.
To view the billboards or to learn more about the organization’s efforts to promote love for babies and support women in their journeys to motherhood, visit http://www.prolifeacrossamerica.org.
Construction manager Tony DiTucci is the president and COO of Livingston Associates. Previously the vice president of DGA Builders, LLC, based in Pittsford, New York, Tony DiTucci provided leadership and oversaw senior housing project development, delivering appropriate housing to seniors.
Senior housing is a critical need in New York. Since 2011, when the first crop of baby boomers retired, the population of America’s seniors has been steadily rising. With about 10,000 people retiring every day across the country, existing senior housing facilities are not enough to house this population.
In New York City, it is projected that by 2030 the population of residents aged over 65 years will hit 1.35 million, making up 14.8 percent of the population. Already, existing senior housing facilities are stretched to capacity. For those who want to get in, wait times are up to 10 years. According to LiveOn NY, the city’s estimated wait list has more than 200,000 names. In Manhattan community districts 7 and 9, for example, 19,700 seniors are waiting for only 45 annual affordable housing openings.
Left unresolved, this shortage will have terrible consequences. Homelessness is an example. Between 2007 and 2014, the number of seniors living in shelters in New York City rose 55 percent. It’s likely it will take the state government working hand in hand with community groups and the private sector to solve this problem.

A devoted philanthropist, Tony DiTucci supports the efforts of the American Cancer Society (ACS) in its efforts to find new treatments and cures for cancer.
In February 2020, the ACS joined with the American Red Cross to roll out a new campaign to raise awareness about the importance of blood donation for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatment. The ACS estimates that cancer patients need almost 25 percent of all stored blood in the United States. The blood helps improve clotting and provide important building blocks, such as proteins and antibodies, to help the body remain strong during treatment.
The best way the public can help is by donating blood at American Red Cross centers. Financial support of the ACS and the Red Cross is also vital. To learn more about the campaign, visit givebloodtogivetime.org.

Tony DiTucci serves DGA Builders, LLC as its vice president, and in his free time works with various community organizations including the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). Tony DiTucci has a long history with the Boy Scouts, and earned the Eagle Scout designation when he was young.
The largest element of the Eagle Scout program is the Eagle Scout Service Project, which requires prospective Eagle Scouts to assist others in their communities through service to an organization outside of BSA. This effort must have the approval of the organization in question as well as the Scout’s unit leader, unit committee, and council or district. The project must be completed after the Life Scout board of review, though Star Scouts are encouraged to start planning and discussing projects before gaining the Life Scout designation.
Eagle Scout projects must meet several requirements before approval. A Scout’s project must provide a clear opportunity to fulfill the community service element of the program. The project should also be one which is likely to provide a positive experience, and one which the Scout can reasonably complete. Finally, any safety issues must be addressed, and the Scout must commit to more detailed planning if the plan submitted is incomplete or overly broad.
