On behalf of the John Spadaro Youth Foundation, we would like to announce that we are postponing our annual event this year in June due to the passing of our father and Co-Chair, Vito Spadaro. We would like to thank you all for your continued support in making it possible to give back to those in our community. We look forward to seeing you next year.
Thank you,
Spadaro Family & Committee
