We are proud to pay tribute to someone who has inspired thousands and dedicated his life to turning boys to men: Coach Albert Fracassa. The Friends of Fracassa initiative began when a group of former players from Brother Rice and Shrine got together to discuss how they could give back to the person who has been a lifelong role model. Our goal is to provide Coach Fracassa and his wife Phyllis with the financial resources to enjoy their years in retirement.
We have several opportunities for players, friends and sponsors to contribute directly to Coach Fracassa and his wife Phyllis. There is a Tribute Banquet on Saturday, May 10, 2014 at 5:30 pm at The Henry in Dearborn. To make a reservation and receive our exclusive ‘Friends of Fracassa’ group discount ($129.00 / 19% discount from $159) visit the Henry Inn Dearborn website, click here. Tickets to this event will be sold on a first come first serve basis and are expected to sell out. All net proceeds will go directly to Coach and Phyllis.
Corporate sponsors can purchase advertising in the event program which will celebrate Coach and his many accomplishments. Former teams, players, parents and families are welcome to participate by sending tributes and memories in the form of a one page, half-page or quarter-page advertisement to Coach and Phyllis.
There is also a Tribute Book where former players and friends can send a full page personal message to coach. These pages will be collected and bound in a Tribute Book(s) and given to Coach.
We also offer the opportunity for you to give a gift directly to Coach and Phyllis through this website. We are committed to honoring Coach for his many years of unselfish service and provide additional financial resources for a comfortable retirement.
