The C.Y.O.’s annual Children’s Fundraiser – Celebrity Dinner began in 1986 when long time sports enthusiasts and Hamilton supporters Angelo Mosca, Jack Pelech, former C.Y.O. Executive Director Tom Gallanger, along with a dedicated group of local businessmen decided to create a fundraising dinner to recognize Hamilton’s home town sports celebrities for their athletic accomplishments, while raising funds in support of the C.Y.O. ‘One-to-One’ camper program for children with special needs. Today, these local sports personalities, builders and heroes are being rewarded for the efforts by being inducted into the newly created Hamilton Sports All of Fame.
Here are just a few of sports celebrities who have attended this annual fundraiser.
