Lou Costello Charity Tent Makes Donation to St. Anthony’s of Padua Parish in Paterson, NJ
Joseph Federico presented the check to St. Anthony's of Padua parish secretary Maria Yee. The donation represents the proceeds of a fundraising bus trip to Atlantic City run by the Lou Costello Charity Tent over the summer.
All proceeds went to benefit St. Anthony’s of Padua Parish in the late great actor Lou Costello’s home town of Paterson NJ. Parish secretary Maria Yee received the check on behalf of the parish.
During the trip to and from Atlantic City, NJ, all guests participated in Bingo games conducted by Joseph Federico and Ruth Vitale with various prizes which raised additional proceeds for the church.
"Given the fun that the participants had and the financial success, we will be planning additional fundraising trips to Atlantic City,” said Mr. Federico.
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 National Circus Saints and Sinners jrjhc of America, Inc. through the permission of the Costello family. It was established to continue the fundraising principles of the previous tent to aid charity organization and charitable causes by holding fundraisers of various types.
