We welcome spectators to come watch the games, learn more about Colon Cancer, enjoy delicious food, and much more!

We have lost loved ones.

This event was created in memory of two fathers, Giacomo (Jack) Sallustio and Raymond Rigoli, who received treatment at MSKCC. 

Jack Sallustio was the loving father of two alumnae of Theta Phi Alpha, Lea and Maria Sallustio, as well as another daughter and a son. His family has strong ties with the Ramapo College community since 3 out of his 4 children are alumni of the college. Jack took his passion and made his own company Jack Sallustio Plumbing & Heating Co., but he never let that over-power his love for his family. He lived his life to the fullest, leaving many lessons for all of us to learn from. 1958 – 2016

Raymond Rigoli was the loving father of an alumnae of Zeta Beta Tau, Tyler Rigoli, and his daughter, Nicole Rigoli, who is a freshman at Ramapo College and on the women's basketball team. Ray impacted the Ramapo College community immensely for 35+ years as a highly dedicated accounting professor. He happily helped hundreds of students find their way, but mainly enjoyed spending time with his large family. Ray's radiant smile and legacy will live on within the campus, and world, forever. 1958 - 2018

The pain this disease has not only caused patients, but loved ones as well, has been too strong for too long. It is time we put in efforts to find a cure for colon cancer!
