Bensalem community honors child’s memory with Sophia’s Senior Tailgate


Sophia Pasquarella would have been part of Bensalem High School’s Class of 2024, but she died in 2014 at the age of 8 from leukemia.

This week, Pete and Kelly Pasquarella held Sophia’s Senior Tailgate in her memory. The party for Bensalem’s graduates, which featured, food, games, music and prizes, was a gift to Sophia’s classmates made possible by the support of a long list of sponsors and donors from throughout the community.
