|Hello Everyone,There have been a few discussions regarding fundraising for our dear Jen and Angelo. I know Jen mentioned that there is something being planned in Ohio- Annie M.- I believe is the person organizing it. Forgive me if I am wrong on that.
I have a suggestion ( if I may do so) maybe you could contact the reporter who did the article on Jen and Angelo’s wedding. I have friends in Ohio who organized a pasta dinner for a friend with brain cancer and the Beacon Journal did an article resulting in a lot of people showed up and helping them raise thousands of dollars. She also said that local companies donated items that were used for a silent auction.
Much love to you all and let me know your thoughts
Michelle, it was probably Jewel Caldwell from the Beacon. She recently listed a fundraiser that my friend Katie had. I am sure she will list something for Jen. I would be happy to help with the one here in Ohio. I was thinking about this as well. I know the Carovillese club will do a special Spaghetti Dinner for a fundraiser…this may be what Ann is planning. So, for whomever is planning the Ohio one please contact me (my info. is listed under the people…Nicole (Wise) Ricchiuti. Thanks for bringing this up Michelle…give Jen a hug for me…Niki
