Holy Family University to Host 2024 All Star Labor Classic; Annual Fundraiser to Benefit The Superhero Project

The region’s top male and female high school basketball seniors will be in the spotlight when Holy Family University hosts the 2024 All Star Labor Classic on Sunday, April 14 from 11 a.m. to 4 pm. The event also will feature several charity games pitting local elected officials and trade union members against members of the local media. The All Star Labor Classic is organized by the Philadelphia Building and Construction Trades Council.

All proceeds will benefit The Superhero Project, a local non-profit founded by Kelly Gallagher M’06 that benefits families who experience premature birth.  The charity purchases and places “Angel Eye Cameras” into Neonatal Intensive Care Unit cribs, allowing parents and families to see their premature babies on their cell phones, even when they are unable to be at their child’s bedside in the hospital. The Superhero Project started in Philadelphia in 2015, but has since grown to have a presence eight states.
Now in its 37th year, the All Star Labor Classic awards all participating high school seniors with a post-graduation $500 scholarship, which can be utilized for further education, whether in college or in pursuit of a trade. 

Admission is free and open to the public.
