Inaugural Tommy Manzella Memorial Benefit at Oakfield Fire Hall to benefit O-A sports
Tommy Manzella passed away in a bad car accident in March. As a way to honor his memory, his parents are having a Chinese Auction to raise money for Oakfield-Alabama High School sports, which he was very passionate about.
The inaugural Thomas Manzella Memorial Benefit is scheduled to take place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 20, at Oakfield Fire Hall. It is located at 20 Albert St. in Oakfield.
All proceeds from this Chinese Auction will go to Oakfield sports -- baseball, basketball and football.
Tommy was always at school every free time he had. He was a kid who loved helping other kids and pushing them to the best they can be. He spent his school breaks helping out and even after he graduated college he was at school, practicing with the kids.
It was decided to continue to do what Tommy would be doing, which is helping kids achieve their goals in sports.
