Fall is in the air, which means the 6th Annual Costumes for Cancer celebration is just around the corner! And this year we have our first theme - Ventian Carnival Masquerade Ball! Inspired by our trip to Venice this past summer! Last year we had over 100 people attend, so this year we hope everyone brings another friend so we can continue to grow this great event! Once again we will gather in our best costumes to party, celebrate the life of my father, and raise money and awareness for a worthy cause. As many of you know, my father, Vito Sr., passed away in December 2012 of stomach cancer. In 2016, we established the Vito Chiaravalloti, Sr. Memorial Scholarship at CBA, providing financial assistance to students whose lives have been in some way impacted by cancer. Although no longer physically with us, my father's spirit remains alive and his legacy lives on! Last year we set our goal to raise $25,000 in three years. We are off to a great start, raising over $17,000 in the past two years alone! In 2017, we had our first Vito J. Chiaravalloti, Sr. Scholarship recipient, Yannis Gouzassis. As a freshman, Yannis took full advantage of the CBA experience participating in crew, wrestling, and volleyball, as well as other clubs and activities. This fall, Yannis will begin his sophomore year and we will welcome another freshman scholarship recipient! This year our goal is $12,000!! So we will need your help! Be sure to mark your calendars and get to the Downtown on Saturday, October 27th. This is a Masquerade Ball, so come dressed to impress in your best outfits. There will be prizes for the best costumes, along with some gift baskets and silent auction items. Then the plan is to stay after to dance it up and have a great night! This year, all guests will be receiving a free drink ticket! **NEW FOR 2018** If you can't make it, you can still join in on the fun! Donate online, dress up for Halloween, and share a photo of yourself on Facebook and Instagram with the hashtag #Costumes4Cancer.
