With more than two decades of experience in the construction field, Tony DiTucci serves as the vice president of DGA Builders, LLC, in Pittsford, New York. In this position, he oversees various commercial and residential real estate developments. Outside of his professional life, Tony DiTucci is a committed philanthropist and supports organizations such as the American Cancer Society.

Earlier this year, the American Cancer Society partnered with the CVS Health Foundation and the Truth Initiative to roll out new grant funding for colleges nationwide that are working to make their schools totally tobacco and smoke free. Each of the organizations has made a commitment to bring forth the first generation of tobacco-free students at these schools and has committed a large amount of money toward that effort.

In total, the group awarded $1.2 million in grant funding to 126 colleges. The recipients represent a wide range of institutions, including state-based schools, historically Black colleges and universities, and community colleges.
