The Dominic Colagiuri Memorial Cup returns for 2018

The community came together in support of bowel cancer research at the Dominic Colagiuiri Memorial Cup on Sunday 28 October.

Vince Colagiuri holds the Dominic Colagiuiri Memorial Cup every year in honour of his brother Dominic, who passed away from bowel cancer in 2014. This year had a record number of seven teams, who competed for the trophy.

Dominic’s friends and family participated to celebrate his memory and passion for football.

The teams came together at Kikoff Centre Marrickville. The competition was sponsored by Roma Capoccia Restaurant in Riverwood and Bakers Delight Revesby, who supplied pastries and pizzas for the players. The event was made possible by a collaboration of sponsors and individuals who gave their time and energy to the energy.
