Joseph Federico Announces the 2018 Lou Costello Charity Tent of Paterson NJ Annual Scholarship Award
The scholarship was presented to Delia Rodriguez, a 2018 graduate of the Passaic County Technical Institute of Wayne, NJ.
"On behalf of the organization, we are pleased to award this scholarship in the name of our tent hero and former Paterson, NJ native Lou Costello to Ms. Rodriquez in recognition of her outstanding scholastic achievements, positive performance and community service," said Joseph Federico.
Originally started in the 1970s 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. After a long hiatus, former director and current president Joseph Federico continues to revamp The Lou Costello Charity Tent of Paterson, NJ, with the permission of the Costello family, as a sub-chapter of the National Circus Saints and Sinners of America, Inc. It 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.
The award was presented to Ms. Rodriguez at the Passaic County Technical Institute awards celebration on June 14th, 2018. Delia, who will be attending William Paterson University this fall, was presented with a gift check by Joseph Federico shortly after the awards ceremony.
