VJ Mancuso Memorial Benefit

Words cannot describe the feeling of gratitude that we have for any and all who donated, participated, attended and or gave of themselves at 1st Annual VJ Memorial Fund Trivia Night, in honor of our Son. Between the laughs, stories and folks getting together, it was memorable evening.

It was a truly a successful night. We all helped raise approximately $15,000. These monies will be put to The VJ Mancuso Memorial Fund, a non for profit organization founded in the memory of VJ Mancuso who courageously lost his battle of a severe congenital heart defect known as Hypo Plastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS). This fund is dedicated to supporting children with special needs, helping organizations, individuals and families that made VJ’s short time in this world a full and happy life.

Some of following beneficiaries include: Early Childhood Center of the Rockwood School District, the children, families and nurses at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, St. Ambrose Church & School and Temple Israel.

Thanks for your friendship, love and support!
