On Wednesday, July 17, 2019, Anthony Salvato, son of Tony Salvato President of Local 1402, was selected to throw out the first pitch at the Philadelphia Phillies game versus the Los Angeles Dodgers. Anthony was selected by the Alzheimer’s Association, Delaware Valley Chapter for starting the team “Pop’s Paisans” in honor of his grandfather, Anthony Salvato who suffers from Lewy Bodies Dementia, a form of Alzheimer’s. Anthony rallied a team of classmates from Holy Child Academy in Drexel Hill to raise over $1,400 for the walk in 2018. Please join him in supporting his team this year by visiting his this link .
Anthony will be walking with his team on November 10, 2019 at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.
