CLIFTON, N.J. - July 9, 2013 - PRLog -- On Monday June 17th 2013, Joseph Federico, President of the Lou Costello Charity Tent of Paterson NJ, presented a scholarship and congratulatory plaque to Paterson Charter School for Science and Technology graduating senior, Pamela Rivera.

Paterson Charter School for Science and Technology offers a comprehensive education model devoted to all areas of the New Jersey Core Curriculum Standards and the Cross-Content Workplace Readiness Standards with a further concentration in the areas of science and technology both in subject content and method of instruction.

Miss Rivera was chosen to receive the Lou Costello Charity Tent award in recognition of her scholastic excellence in the areas of science and technology.  She will be attending NJIT (NJ Institute of Technology) starting in the fall and plans on studying Biomedical Engineering.

The presentation was made by Joseph Federico at the school’s early morning assembly.  Miss Rivera commented on her award by “thanking her parents, guidance counselors and the Paterson community for their motivation and support throughout the years.”

Originally started in the 1970’s as the Lou Costello Tent by Mr. Costello’s personal physician and longtime friend Dr. Fred Crecente, the organization is comprised of prominent members of the professional and business world.  The organization has raised thousands of dollars for charitable organizations via celebrity dinner roasts, casino nights, and golf outings. Celebrities who have been roasted in the tent’s history include Mickey Mantle, Billy Martin, Chuck Scarborough, Mel Allen, Phil Simms, Lou Duva, Daryl Strawberry, Sen. Bill Bradley, Rocky Graziano, Henny Youngman, Pat Cooper and Bob Grant.

After a long hiatus, former Director and current President Joseph Federico revamped  The Lou Costello Charity Tent of Paterson, NJ as a sub-chapter of the National Circus Saints and Sinners of America, Inc. through the permission of the Costello family. The charity tent was established to continue the fund raising principles of the previous tent  -- to aid charity organizations and charitable causes by holding fundraisers of various types.

Upcoming projects include a celebrity roast (to be announced), a night at the races and a circus event.
