Serving Up Websites to Pancakes in West Orange, Essex County, NJ
When the pancake grill was heated and the attendees started filing into the West Orange High School cafeteria, John Mitrano of UNICO Orange/West Orange, NJ was there to make the pancakes for the 300+ attendees. John was one of a number of UNICO member volunteers that arrived at 7am to begin preparations for a special event every year to honor and recognize local athletes and their coaches in our community. Chapter members do all the cooking and serve the attendees at the event.
This was for The 46th Annual UNICO Sports Award Breakfast honoring athletes from local high schools which included Orange High School, West Orange High School, Seton Hall Prep and Golda Och Academy. Former New York Ranger's Adam Graves was the featured speaker at this year's event. This year's UNICO Sports Breakfast event raised $29,000. These funds are used to give support to these talented, high-achieving athletes in the form of college scholarships, for cancer research, and given to mental health charities. UNICO’s motto is “Service Above Self”
