At the opening day of the North End Athletic Association (NEAA) Soccer Program at Puopolo Park, the Nazzaro Center kids raised over $500 for Making Strides, a Breast Cancer Walk which they will participate in, according to John Romano.
“Paige Fitzgerald and her family organized the fundraiser along with Michele Deavue of the Center,” Romano said.
“Many residents baked goodies for the sale and others donated numerous prizes for the raffle,” Romano noted.
“Diane Szule handled all of the computer work putting together rosters and collecting all of the data from soccer registration forms,” he added.
Romano also thanked Mikey “Fud” Giannasoli, Heidi Romanow, Mary and Frank Romano, Patricia Romano, Guarino Vilar and all the coaches for their help and donations to the soccer program and bake sale.
This year’s Soccer commissioners are Juan Gali, David Serpa and John Boucher.
