Oct. 17, 2021- CYO “Open Arms” Track Meet
“We were truly fortunate to have been chosen as a beneficiary as the CYO NY “Open Arms” Track and Field Meet held on October 17, at beautiful St. Augustine’s Campus. Close to $10K was generated for Saint Dominic’s Family Services. Twenty-five (25) youth of all skill levels who benefit from the services provided Saint Dominic’s Family Services, enjoyed a fun-filled day. Seth Peloso, Director of Catholic Youth Organization NY and his team were extremely accommodating and professional. We look forward to partnering with CYO on future programs.”
–Brian Finneran, President, Friends of Saint Dominic’s.
“CYO welcomes everyone with “open arms”, so when this opportunity presented itself to support a fellow agency serving children, our volunteers enthusiastically supported this event. Saint Dominic’s friends and family, you are welcome back anytime.”
–Seth Peloso, Director, Catholic Youth Organization
“I couldn’t have spent a better day watching the children from Saint Dominic’s Family Services and CYO show the true meaning of sportsmanship and friendship. The children, parents and volunteers showed a true sense of community.”
–Tom Rooney, Donor, Friends of Saint Dominic’s.
