ONE SHOT WONDERS – The Tents, Headstrong Foundation, Nicki Minaj

Nick Colleluori passed away five years ago after a fight with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. It was a dream of his to help others who found themselves in his position. His parents carried that message and began the “HEADstrong Foundation” in his honor. Over the past 4 years they’ve raised money through charity fundraisers, so they could fun their goal of creating “Nick’s House”. At nearly 3,000-square foot the structure will serve as the HEADstrong office, a warehouse and most importantly, a temporary home for up to two families to stay while their child is being treated for blood cancer. Above Cheryl and Pat Sr. Colleluori outside Nick’s House prior to ”garage opening” ceremony behind the closed doors the Quaker City String Band stood ready to greet the well wishers.
