VBF Comedy Night Fundraiser in Bronx, New York Provides Much More than Just Laughs!

Fran Muscarella organized yet another very successful event to benefit VBF! Her Comedy Night fundraiser was held on October 19th at the Guiding Star Restaurant, Bronx, NY in honor of her five year old granddaughter, Julia McGrath who has a port wine stain and Klippel-Trenaunay Syndrome.

 

Over 180 people attended to see New York City comedians, Vic Dibitetto, Tommy Gooch and Fred Rubino. In addition to a night of laughs, attendees enjoyed a wonderful dinner, music and fabulous raffle prizes, including grand prizes of NY Giants and NY Jets tickets! A hairstylist was providing burgundy hair extensions in exchange for a donation to VBF. Burgundy represents the color of vascular birthmarks. It was a fantastic evening that resulted in a profit of over $8,500 for VBF!!!

 

VBF is very grateful for the continued support of Fran and her lovely family.
