Basketball Benefit Recipients On Wednesday, June 11th All Saints on the Hudson Parish Youth were pleased to present a check to the recipients of our recent annual basketball benefit to Elizabeth Close and Donna Perkins (Michaela Perkins for Donna Perkins). Pictured for this gathering were: Father Thomas Morrette, pastor of All Saints on the Hudson, Vickie Giulianelli, Director of Youth Ministry, Ann Gaetano benefit chairperson and members of the parish's Youth Council- Brianna Denier, Anthony D'Ambro, Vinnie Varvaro, and Anthony Clements, Noah Perras to name a few.
Donna Volpe Perkins of Mechanicville and Elizabeth Close, the home and careers teacher at Stillwater Central School, are fighting the fight of their lives. Both are battling cancer. When our neighbors fight cancer, these close-knit communities of Mechanicville and Stillwater rally around to give all the love and support they can. And that love and support was palpable at the MHS gymnasium on Friday night.
It’s become a tradition here in our communities for the All Saints on the Hudson Youth Council to embrace the cause of a person in each community each year who needs financial as well as moral support by putting on a benefit basketball extravaganza.
