Lariccias honored for donations of $100,000 to Animal Charity

The prospect of a humane agency’s closing and less help for animals in need made Mary Lariccia unable to sleep one cold midwinter night.

A few days and $50,000 later, however, she was able to sleep a lot more soundly.

“I thought of the neglected animals and the next day, Tony made calls and said, ‘We want to give $50,000 right now,” Mary said during a news conference Sunday at Animal Charity Humane Society, 4140 Market St., to thank Anthony and Mary Lariccia for their support.

A January 2011 Vindicator article made Mary Lariccia aware that a lack of funding threatened to shutter Animal Charity, so a short time later, the entrepreneurial couple donated the $50,000 gift that allowed the agency to remain open.

On Jan. 12, the Lariccias donated another $50,000 to Animal Charity, which is Mahoning County’s only humane agency.

Also on hand at the gathering was a plaque awarding the Lariccia family for their contributions to Animal Charity.
