October, 2008     Philadelphia Quartett Club Tribute Show
Singer Mike Alullo who, with Bill Kelly and Kelly Enterprises, put the show together

Mike, the baritone singer for Frankie & the Fashions, died just 3 weeks before the show so the show also became a tribute to him as well as our fallen police officers.
Street Corner Five
"I Took a Chance On You"
All proceeds were donated to the Alullo family and the Phila F.O.P.

All of the performers donated their time and immense talents to this cause.

We wholeheartedly thank each and every one of them.
