ALTOONA, BLAIR COUNTY - An estimated 400 people came to Pellegrine's Restaurant and Bar Sunday night to honor a boy who died in a tragic accident. Several bands played for the large crowd that came out to support the Ciccarella family.
16 year old Altoona student Eugene Ciccarella drowned a week ago while playing with friends at Raystown Lake. Friends, family and even Pellegrine's workers wore t-shirts with Eugene's picture on them.
Proceeds will pay for the family's funeral expenses.
