Welcome to the Hazleton Area Academy of Sciences
PLAY 4 JUSTIN
On June 13, 2017, at 12:50 PM, our friends and brothers were involved in a horrific car accident.
One, Jerry Catina, suffered extreme lung damage and is currently recovering from surgery.
Tragically, our brother, Justin Pinzaru, passed away in the accident. He was on vacation from Florida,
as he had spent the first 15 years of his life growing up in the Hazleton Area and simply wanted to visit his friends for the summer.
We are now collecting donations to support Justin’s family in their period of grief and the cost of Jerry’s surgery.
We are also organizing a fundraiser to support our friend, Play 4 Justin, occurring on June 29th, 2017, at the Valley East Little League Field.
If you cannot contribute to this event, you can donate to our GoFundMe kickstarters to support our brothers:
Any donation is acceptable. Thank you so much for your contribution. You have no idea how much this means to all of us.
