Columbian Club goes to bat for Misericordia



Vince Morreale (from left), Carmen Forte, Gabe Caporale and John Ferrentino presented Sr. Rosemary Connelly of Misericordia Heart of Mercy with a check from the Columbian Club Charitable Foundation for $30,000. The donation represents the proceeds from the second annual brunch that the foundation hosted for the benefit of Misericordia. The event raised crucial funds to support the more than 700 residents with developmental disabilities. The Columbian Club has pledged to continue this event annually, as promised to those in attendance by incoming president Tony Ambrose.
