DUNMORE, Pa. -- A banquet dinner and roast was held at La Buona Vita in Dunmore to raise money for Coaches vs Cancer.

Folks came out to the sold-out event to bring awareness and support the American Cancer Society's efforts in battling the disease.

The honoree of the roast, Father Josepha Sica, said it's a diagnosis that hits close to home for him.

"I, myself, am a cancer survivor," Father Sica said. "After treatment, I am now cancer-free, so I can relate to people right now who are struggling with a diagnosis that is not the best."

The event was sold out here in Lackawanna County.
