I feel each day we hear of yet another breakthrough. We are coming closer and closer to the cure. Although I am not eligible for many “active drug” trials, I still want to contribute. As I wait, I do all I can to help FARA keep going by fundraising and raising awareness.
Everyone needs to eat dinner so why not have pizza and beer, while listening to live music and supporting a good cause on a random Tuesday night. For the past six years, that’s what I do.
On Tuesday night, April 24, 2018, I had a "Flatbread fundraiser for FARA". Flatbread restaurant, which serves organic brickoven pizza, has a weekly charity night. A portion from the sale of pizza goes to FARA. A keg of beer was donated by a friend and the entire sale also goes to FARA. Joe Parrillo started off the night with some acoustics. My uncle Neil Porter and his band, Grand Theft Audio, closed the night playing some great tunes and my aunt belted out a few songs. I was rolling around from table to table checking out everyone’s pizza!
