Truly amazing people cross our paths once in a lifetime perhaps. When you meet that one person who truly touches your soul and feels like home, how can you not be blessed? Have you ever met someone for the first time and felt like you knew them before, like you knew them forever, in another time and space? Someone who is always there for you, for their family who comes first who knows the heartfelt feeling of who and what comes first and is always there to help someone in need?
Well, there is one person that could be described just as that, Luca Foglia who was incredibly and shockingly taken from us only on October 22 2014 without want or warning.
As Jen tells us;
I am writing you today hoping that you can help us help a good friend who is truly in need.
Our friend Elaine Foglia lost her husband Luca suddenly on October 22, 2014 very unexpectedly to complications with diabetes. They have 2 daughters who are both currently in college, Carly is a freshman at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia and Kayla who is a junior at Holy Family College. Unfortunately, Elaine is now left with the burden of the mortgage and 2 college tuitions on her own, due to the fact that Luca has a pre-existing condition, diabetes, they were only able to afford a small life insurance policy.
With all of that being said, her friends and family are working together to hold a fundraiser in honor of Luca to help Elaine and the girls. The fundraiser is being held on February 8, 2014 at Galdo’s Catering Hall, 1933 W. Moyamensing Ave in South Philadelphia from 2:00 – 6:00pm. We will be having music, food, 50/50, Chinese auction and hoping to raffle off some other prizes.
We are asking if you could donate an item that can be placed in a gift basket or auctioned off individually during the benefit. If you are able to do so, we will place the name of your business with the prizes so that everyone knows who donated.
If you are able to donate, please contact me, Jenn McFadden at 856-649-9601 to make arrangements for me to pick up your donation or you could mail it directly to me, Jennifer McFadden, 29 Mansfield Dr, Sewell NJ 08080.
Thank you in advance for your help! Please contact Jennifer McFadden for donations and contributions to this wonderful event to help a dearly loved and sadly missed friend, Luca Foglia, you will never be forgotten!
Be there for Luca’s family as he was there for you and the community, always a loving friend, businessman, member of the community as well.
God Bless you Luca Foglia.
