“Instead of an admission fee, the tournament committee has asked that spectators bring any quantity of non-perishable food to the game locations where they will provide collection boxes,” said Mary-Margaret Pezzela-Pekow, executive director. “Game locations include the Fulton War Memorial, Fairgrieve Elementary School, the Junior High School and Lanigan Elementary School. We are extremely grateful to the tournament committee for its support.”

Generous gifts and donations to Catholic Charities have supported more than 160,000 children, woman and men in need.
