He has been caring for cardiac patients in Berks County for over 27 years. He is married to Rosanna and has 3 children. Ashley, Mario and Louis. In the little spare time he has, he golfs, enjoys traveling and spending time with family. He has agreed to dance at the “gentle persuasion” by his daughters Mother in law, Lisa Tiger. For 2 reasons. #1 to benefit the Yocum Institute in preparation of many Grand kids expecting they will be spending lots of time experiencing the arts . #2 I enjoy dancing with Ashley to 21st September by EWF which also happens to be the day Her and Bill were married.
Dancing with the Reading Stars raises money necessary to support on-going operations, scholarships, productions, and our many outreach and offsite programs – 50% of which are provided at little or no cost to the community. In addition to its onsite classes and preschool, Yocum Institute outreach and offsite programs impact 30,000 people each year. 80% are under the age of 18 and 50% of those Yocum serves are considered at risk population. Although many do not realize it, Yocum is much more than the bricks and mortar of the building located at 3000 Penn Avenue. Yocum develops and runs programs throughout Berks County.
Thank you for your generosity in supporting the arts!
