John Barbero Memorial Auction Benefits YMCA, Scholarship


Buckley, Chris, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


The second annual John Barbero Memorial Auction will be held 1 to 4 p.m. Nov. 6 at the Mon Valley YMCA in Carroll Township.

During the event, two $1,000 scholarships will be awarded with proceeds from last year's event. The awardees are Chanier Guti of Charleroi, and Sara Bowker of Monongahela, both California University of Pennsylvania students.
