These include a 2015 Harley Davidson “Wide Glide” or a 2015 Harley Davidson “Street Bob.”  Tickets cost $20 each or 3 for $50.

Director of Operations and head coach, Jennifer Siciliano, along with her father, Stephen Siciliano, Executive Officer, have chosen the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute to be the beneficiary of this year’s fundraiser.  The Cancer Institute is a nonprofit organization with offices in Scranton and Wilkes-Barre, whose mission is to ease the burden of cancer in northeast Pennsylvania.

The Northeast Stars softball organization primarily works with young women ages 13 to 19.  The organization is made up of team members from several counties in NEPA, who play on one of three teams.  The mission of the group is to teach, instruct, and promote good softball techniques to young women.  In addition, the organization strives to teach individuals the importance of respect and giving back to the community.  Head coach, Jennifer Siciliano, who is also the head softball coach at Scranton Preparatory School, believes in playing with enthusiasm and passion.

Tickets for the raffle can be purchased by calling Jennifer Siciliano at 570-575-4258; Stephen Siciliano at 570-885-1883; or the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute at 570-941-7984.  The Grand Prize will be awarded on January 10th, 2015 at Rommel Harley Davidson along Route 6 in Dickson City.

Money raised stays in northeast Pennsylvania to fund community and patient services at the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute.
