8th Annual Charity Bocce Tournament

April 22nd, 2012

Spring is here! That means its Bocce Season!

On Saturday, June 23, 2012, The Helping Kids and Families Fund, INC (501(c) (3) tax exempt) will be sponsoring the 8th annual N & JT “John A. Terranova, Sr.” Charity Mixed Couples Bocce Ball Tournament at the St. Ambrogio Society bocce courts to raise funds for two programs benefiting our community. It’s hard to believe but it’s been 8 successful years helping kids and families in our community!

And, in addition to the tournament, at our dinner we’ll offer one of the Midwest’s favorite entertainers with:

The Jerry Armstrong Show

This fundraising event will benefit Rockford MELD for their programs helping kids from single parent households and St. Anthony of Padua Church to replenish their fund  which helps families in need.  Since we started this event, the Bocce Tournament and dinner has raised close to $30,000 for community organizations!

Would you be willing to donate to or sponsor our event?  Please take a look at our insert.

We hope we can count on your support.  Thank You.

Bocce tournament update

June 22nd, 2010

Hello,

Just wanted to update you on our  tournament July 10th.  We have room for a few more teams so I’ve extended the sign up for another week.  Also, if you don’t have a 4 member team (2 girls/2 boys) then sign up anyway and we’ll form a team for you.

Our dinner entertainment will be a blast with The Vito Zatto Show.  Those of you who have seen him perform know what I mean when I say he is truly a funny entertainer.  Everyone will enjoy Vito’s singing, comedy and impersonations!  There will also be dancing later in the evening.

Dinner will start at 6 p.m. with the show starting at 6:30 p.m.  We’ll have the raffle drawing at 8:30 p.m.  Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

Get your tickets now!
