Dear Friends

Spring is here! That means its Bocce Season!

On  Saturday, June 25, 2016, The Helping Kids and Families Fund, INC (501(c) (3) tax exempt) will be sponsoring our 12th Annual N&JT “John A. Terranova, Sr.” Charity Mixed Couples Bocce Ball Tournament at the St. Ambrogio Society bocce courts to raise funds for two programs benefiting our community. It’s hard to believe but it’s been 12 successful years helping kids and families in our community!

And, in addition to the tournament, at our dinner we’ll feature

The NEW Vito Zatto Show

Be prepared to eat, drink and feeling very merry!!

This fundraising event will benefit Rockford MELD – for their programs helping kids from single parent households and St. Anthony of Padua Church to replenish their fund  which helps families in need.  Since we started this event, the Helping Kids and Family Fund has raised over $40,000 for community organizations!
