“The Annual FOCO Holiday took place on Friday, December 9, 2011 at The Knight of Columbus Hall in Mineola, New York. The event was attended by over 230 members who were treated to a sumptuous feast provided by Arditos and music by DJ Carl.

3rd Prize Regina Matejka, sold by C.O. Al Perrone
The Annual Francisco Rosa III College Scholarship was won by Kyle Moore, son of FOCO member Denise Moore. Kyle received a check for $1,000.00
The success of the Holiday Raffle also enabled us to present a check for $500.00 to Capt. Denise Zeitler to help with the Suffolk County Little Flower Toy Drive.
We were also able to send a check to Sgt. Tom Jones for $500.00 for the Blythdale Children’s Toy Drive – Fund Raiser in Westchester County.
The nights festivities also included the awards presentations for the Sixth Annual FOCO Pistol Competition. The first place trophy was presented to team Captain David Miranda and the Bronx Supreme Court team with a score of 900. Second place went to last year’s champs, Kings Family (879) and third place went to Nassau Family (865)
