November 2019 Honoree

Edla Collora
Joe Lang Foundation
Executive Director

Edla Collora and her children started the Joe Lang Foundation in 2007 to honor her late husband, who was known for his compassion and help to people in need. Joe came from East Side housing projects, one of four boys to a single mom. Joe, a latchkey kid found an outlet in sports: because of his athletic talent, he was drafted by the Chicago White Sox, but passed up the opportunity to play professional baseball for a full scholarship to LeMoyne College. He couldn’t stay away from alcohol, however, and drank his way out of school. He went on to bartending and bouncer jobs in Western New York.
