FIRST ANNUAL EVENING OF JAZZ AND AUCTION RAISES OVER $20,000 FOR GOOD CAUSES
The First Annual Manuel J. Marshall Memorial Foundation Evening of Jazz and Auction held at Gonzaga College High School on June 28, 2012 was a huge success! Attendees viewed a treasure of auction items during the silent auction while a live jazz band played. All had plenty to eat and drink. Later, a professional auctioneer auctioned off several valuable auction items including trips to Costa Rica and Amalfi, Italy, and a Baltimore Ravens football signed by the 2013 Super Bowl MVP, Joe Flacco, who played with Manny at the University of Delaware.
The event raised over $21,000 that was donated for scholarships at Gonzaga College High School, activities at St. Francis de Sales Church and tutorial programs for student/athletes at the University of Delaware.
