With the assistance of Joey Mormina, Paul Thompson and Riley Holzapfel along with their wives and girlfriends some special patients at Janet Weis are smiling! The Palermo Foundation cant express enough gratitude to those players that joined us for this visit. Below are some of the photos from this special day.

Damenti’s Ice Bar and the Palermo Heart to Heart Foundation are working together with area non-profit charities this winter.
Palermo Heart to Heart Foundation, sole sponsors of the Beads of Courage program at Janet Weis Children’s Hospital, will be donating half of all nightly bar sales to non-profit charities this season.
The selected charity’s job is to promote this event through any means possible to ensure a good turnout. Volunteer celebrity bartenders work well, and generally give their tips to the charity.
Rental is free and includes a fully stocked Ice Bar; the selected charity will keep half of all sales from the night while the other half will go to the Palermo Foundation’s effort in supporting the Janet Weis Children’s Hospital.
The Palermo Foundation is offering local businesses the opportunity to get involved by sponsoring a carved window made of ice that will showcase the business’s name, showing support for this exciting combined charity effort.
Companies that have secured a corporate window are:
