In conjunction with Make-A-Wish Philadelphia, Northern Delaware and Susquehanna Valley and raising $5,500 which will be attributed to a Wish through the Kids for Wish Kids program, Lansdale Catholic will also be making local Wish Child Kevin's dream of playing football come true Friday night at their Homecoming game. Kevin will be presented with memorabilia donated by both teams, and our trainers, NovaCare. He will also be a part of the coin toss, stand on the sidelines and take part in a play.
Good luck to our homecoming court members: Matt Fitzpatrick (Corpus Christi), Dan Godzieba (St. Stanislaus), Reece Hoyer (SASH), Ossi Onu (MMR), Joe Pinzka (SASH), John Sagl (St. Marie Goretti), Amanda Bradley (MMR), Kelli Brulenski (MMR), Deirdre Coulter (St. Jude), Rachel Hart (St. Marie Goretti), Keira Koch (St. Philip) and Chase Wassel (MMR). By voting and fundraising efforts this week, proceeds will benefit our "adopted" Make A Wish Child, Kevin and his family.
