The Matthew P Pellegrino II Memorial Golf Outing, is excited to keep the focus this year on the All-Inclusive Playground in Deptford, NJ at Fasola Park. This project will continue to take a few years to accomplish but the benefits for children and adults of all capabilities will be enjoyed for a lifetime. It is our hope that once the playground is built, we will continue to expand and maintain the playground through your continued generosity and support in the coming years. We plan to keep all of our supporters informed of the planning and building from start to finish, with regular updates on our website and upon completion, a special celebration of dedication in memory of Matty. In addition to the annual major charitable gift, the foundation also provides 5 year pledges to local charitable organizations in need. The current organizations benefitting from the pledges are:
Cinnaminson High School Scholarship Fund Cinnaminson, NJ
Harlem Grown Summer Camp for Kids Harlem, NY
Good Counsel Homes for Babies and Mothers Riverside, NJ
Christiana Foundation, Night to Shine Swedesboro, NJ

Matty’s Home of Hope Project at the Bucks County Emergency Homeless Shelter
In October 2017, with the help of over 100 volunteers and additional support from local vendors in the area, we were able to help fund and complete a $150,000 addition to the Bucks County Emergency Homeless Shelter in just one day. This addition of “Matty’s Home of Hope” provided the shelter with two family units so that a variety of families have a place to remain together in the shelter and get back on their feet. Thank you for all of your generous time, contributions, and hard work in making this project a success!
