THE H.O.P.E. FOUNDATION INAUGURAL
WINE TASTING EVENT
RAISED FUNDS FOR THE COACH FRANK D.B. DICOCCO MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP

  

Kathy and Lou DiCocco welcomed over 100 guests to The H.O.P.E. Foundation’s Inaugural Wine Tasting Benefit at the St. Patrick’s Parish Center in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida on Thursday evening,
March 6, 2014. 

 

Long time friends and supporters, including Jack Daniels, the Head Coach at The William T. Dwyer School, and the evening’s Master of Ceremonies Joe Greco, joined the couple. Guests including Wine Enthusiast's "American Wine Legend" Hubert Opici, Maureen Donnarumma of the Waterbury Republican newspaper, Palm Beachers Wayne and Victoria Arute enjoyed lavish hors d’oeuvres while sampling the 35 white and red wines chosen for the evening by noted sommelier, Virginia Philip of Virginia Philip Wine Shop Academy.  Live violin music was provided by North Palm Beach high school student Keeth Smith, who serenaded the guests as they wined and dined.

 

Guests bid on auction items, which included everything from a Samsung flat screen television to Paul Anka concert tickets to NY Mets game seats. Palm Beach artist Yelitza Karolyi , who had donated one of her beautiful paintings, personally presented her work to the winning bidder. The first annual wine tasting event raised funds for Coach Frank D.B. DiCocco Memorial Scholarships.

In addition to the auction and raffle items, copies of the book “Playbook for Manhood: A Game Plan For Being A Real Man" were purchased. The DiCocco’s late son Frank who also founded the non-profit wrote the book. The educational literature is now being implemented in classrooms, athletic departments, homes and camps as a framework to instruct young people.

The following evening Kathy and Lou DiCocco joined Coach Daniels at the Dwyer Panthers’ Banquet Dinner at the Abacoa Golf Club in Jupiter, Florida where they presented high school senior and team Captain Gerald Hearns  with a Coach Frank D. B. DiCocco Memorial Scholarship check to help in his athletic and scholarly future.

The H.O.P.E. Foundation For a Better Tomorrow helps underprivileged student athletes demonstrate exemplary ambition, a commitment to both academic and intellectual excellence, dedication to community service and a desire to become personally and professionally successful. This mission is achieved through scholarships for at-risk youth and the distribution of Coach Frank D.B. DiCocco’s REAL Man Character Development program, which is distributed nationwide to teach today's youth.
