About this Event

The goal of the Fly Frankie Fly Fundraiser is to raise funds for The Phightin' Frankie Foundation's mission of ending the stigma of addiction and providing various forms of assistance to individuals actively seeking a life of recovery!

Tickets to this year's event will get you:

  • Fly Frankie Fly T-Shirt
  • Open bar from 12:30pm - 3:30pm (draft beer, wine, and well drinks)
  • All you can eat tailgate buffet

With the funds generated from last year's Fly Frankie Fly Fundraiser we were able to scholarship 6 individuals struggling to pay their recovery home fees. We were also able to aid a local recovery home to rebuild their home after an accidental fire left their tenants with nothing. In 2020 we are aiming to help as many individuals seeking a life of recovery as possible, and it all starts with this event!

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

The Phightin’ Frankie Foundation was founded by the Felicioni Family in 2018, after their son/brother lost his nearly ten year long fight with addiction. Frankie grew up in West Chester, PA spending his time hanging out with his friends and family, playing various sports, and cheering on the Philadelphia sports teams he was so passionate about. In June of 2008 Frankie was in a car accident that nearly caused him to lose his right leg. Due to the severity of his injuries, Frankie was prescribed various pain killers for the remainder of 2008 and much of 2009. This was the beginnings of what would become a nearly ten year struggle with opioid addiction. On February 24, 2018 he lost his battle with addiction when he overdosed on a fatal dose of heroin laced with fentanyl.

The most unfortunate reality is that Frankie’s story is not unlike countless others’ in the Greater Philadelphia Area and across the United States. Following these tragic events families are left behind to wonder what they could have done to better support their lost loved one. The Felicioni Family chose to create the Phightin’ Frankie Foundation to prevent other families from ever reaching this point.

The Phightin’ Frankie Foundation aims to end the stigma of addiction that prevents crucial conversations from taking place between those struggling with addiction and their loved ones. We work to support the person struggling and their loved ones navigate the financial burden of attending rehabilitation facilities, and recovery homes thereafter.
