RARIUTAN TWP., NJ – The Hunterdon Regional Cancer Center has received another donation from the annual Cynthia K. Critelli Memorial Basketball Tournament.

This is the 16th year of the tournament, and its $4,000 contribution brings the tournament’s total raised for the Center to $76,250. But this year, the event did not have enough teams to hold the actual basketball tournament. 

A number of the teams who planned to play in the event - and residents of Readington and Basking Ridge - wanted to continue the efforts to support this worthy cause.

Ben Ribaudo and his seventh-grade Readington Girls Travel team, Jim Stevens and his sixth-grade boys travel team, Pat Barret and his fifth-grade Girls travel teams all donated their team registration fees to the effort.

The Allorto Family (Readington Township), Flemington-Raritan Youth basketball, and the Mattiola Family (Basking Ridge) and Eliot Runyon (South Brunswick) all made generous donations to the event.

The proceeds were donated to Hunterdon Regional Cancer Center in memory of Cynthia K. Critelli, a Readington teacher and beloved community member who died in 2004 after battling breast cancer.

Tournament Director Ron Armellino was extremely appreciative of all these teams and individuals stepping up to continue to support the event.

The 17th Annual event date for 2020 is still being determined and will be announced in the future. Any person or organization who would like information on how they can support the event can contact Ron Armellino at mailto:rjarmellino@embarqmail.com.
