The event will be hosted by Willie’s Warriors. An organization created by Lydia Vazquez who currently resides in Lancaster MA. She created the group to remember her father, Wilfredo Vazquez-Pol who lost his 10 year battle against cancer on April 8, 2010. This event marks the 8th year anniversary of his death. Lydia Vazquez and Breakaway Billiards have been hosting this event for 8 years. Lydia states “The event is successful because it is not just about my dad, we honor several other “Warriors”, all local members of the community, we all come out to remember many of our loved one through this group.
