UPPER CHICHESTER, Pa. – Associazione Regionale Abruzzese Delco held its 15th annual fundraiser in October to benefit the Communities of Don Guanella and Divine Providence and the Italian Language Scholarship Fund at Phoenix Ballroom.

Food and beverages were donated by Marino and Paola Giancroce, and music was provided by Brooklyn’s Vito Lombardo. A special guest appearance by Chris Burke, who played “Corky” on Life Goes On in the 1990s, delighted the crowd when he rallied a few other guys from Don Guanella Village, into a lively rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” Burke is an alumnus of Don Guanella Village.
