Holy Trinity All Stars Basketball was founded around 1976. The Ministry is for intellectually and developmentally disabled individuals. This is a program run by several volunteers (previously Auggie de Vito) to provide basketball shooting time for intellectually and developmentally disabled individuals, mainly from local homes of ARC of Monmouth. Several volunteer coaches who are background checked and Vitus certified facilitate the program and assist the individuals as needed. The program was started 40 years ago by Auggie de Vito who last year won a Governor’s Award for his volunteer efforts which included this program. The program provides an outlet from the homes and also the time for participants to socialize with others from different homes. The program has run an annual Halloween and Christmas pizza party an ends the year with a banquet. The banquet recognizes each participant and awards a trophy. The program is supported by the city of Long Branch, and donations from individuals to pay for the banquet. The banquet has been attended by the Mayor and Members of the City Council.
