On Tuesday evening, November 7, my dear friend’s family was awoken by the smell of flames. Their house was on fire and it had already spread. Thankfully, everyone made it to safety although they are currently separated by temporary living arrangements. Their family home and infrastructure was devastated by the damage. All of the family’s belongings were destroyed including clothes, furniture, and artwork. Unfortunately there is no homeowners insurance. Their house cat has not been seen since the fire.
If you know Big AJ (Anthony Campione) personally, you may know someone that he has helped. He may have helped you or a loved one. His generous spirit and supportive advice are unmatched by most. The door is always open at Big AJ’s, as it was for their close family friend Matthew Defebbo who also suffered the total loss of his belongings. If you have been to an epic ‘fight night’, to Laurie Pacetti and AJ’s salon (The New You), or had some artistry done by Brittany Bertino at the Ink Station, I am asking you to share this fundraiser as friends of our family. We ask that this community of friends and family come together during this time of loss to ease the burden of repair before this holiday season. Little AJ and Elisas son baby Enzo is expected to arrive in 2 months. Enzo will be Big AJ and Laurie’s first grandchild.
The family is thankful to the community's immediate outpouring of love and support.
