HOLMDEL, N.J. This past Sunday, attendees for the special Mighty Mite (MM89) game were in for more than a regular football game today as they kicked off an exciting morning of football, food, fun and a very special guest.

Autumn Allocco, a MM cheerleader and  3rd Grader at Holmdel Village School, shared a very special bond with Marina Del Presto, an 8th Grader who sadly passed earlier this month. Autumn and Marina through the Music and Art Academy of Matawan, had performed in local theater together on stage at the Middletown Arts Center.  Autumn admired Marina as a very talented performer and especially for Marina's kindness, as so many of the girls in her acting school did. Many mention Marina's tenderness towards others, especially her care for the younger girls she performed with. You can see that in one of the photos featured.  You can also listen to a beautiful song performed by Autumn for everyone in the video below. It includes a special moment of silence for the hearts that yearn for the days of sitting together with Marina, laughing and smiling as young girls do.  The Holmdel Community mourns the loss of precious Marina Del Presto and her family is on the hearts and in the thoughts and prayers of so many.
