On July 25, 2013 we lost one of our main team players, Gabe Milanese Jr., to a brain tumor. When he was diagnosed, all he wanted to do was to give back. Gabe Milanese was a selfless man his whole life and he will forever live in our memory and our hearts.
Over the next few weeks, we will be participating in a number of events in memory of Gabe, and we invite you all to join us!
Third Annual Beef and Beer!
Our first year sold out of tickets so fast that we decided to do another one! When the second year was also a success, we decided to keep the ball rolling. In the picture at the bottom of this post are some of the baskets that we will have that will be given away when we do our raffle.
- What: Beef & Beer “Team Gabe” Fundraiser
- Where: Coatesville Moose Lodge, 1200 Airport Road, Coatesville, PA 19320
- When: Friday, November 11th from 7pm—11pm
- Why: To Help find a cure for Brain Tumors – In Memory of Gabe Milanese Jr
- Cost: To purchase tickets, call Trish Milanese at Milanese Remodeling at 610-384-5820. You can also reach Trish via email at Milanese@MilaneseRemodeling.com. The tickets are $35 per person and $65 per couple.
We hope everyone can come out and enjoy. It’s an amazing night and it’s for a great cause as well! Below are some photos from last year’s event.
Join Us in the Race for Hope
For the fourth year, we will be running/walking in Philadelphia at the Race for Hope with the Brain Tumor Society. The event takes place on Sunday, October 2nd, at 8 AM. Click the link to join our team or donate to a great cause. Our name is “Team Gabe.” In honor of Gabe Milanese, Jr. our team captain Alex Sagnor has been keeping the team together for the past 3 years. We hope to raise another $10,000 for the Brain Tumor Society, which will go towards finding a cure to this terrible disease that currently affects nearly 700,000 Americans.
A big thank you to everyone who has helped us along the journey in the past few years! Without your support we would never have reached our goals. It really does mean the world to us because it shows us every year that Gabe just touched so many hearts and connected with so many people. We were not only blessed to have him in our lives, but as a part of our family.
