Donation protected
Dear Friends,
The outpouring of love, support, and generosity for my friend Jimmy Bruno has been magnanimous! On behalf of Jimmy's family, and my Big Jersey Guitar Camp team, please accept our heartfelt THANK YOU for donations both big and small that will help Jimmy as he moves forward from his great loss. Peggy Bruno's kindness, presence, and laughter will be sorely missed by us all.
Since some folks are just starting to hear about this fundraiser, we will be keeping it active for another few weeks.
Wishing everyone a Happy and Healthy New Year! Thanks again.
Frank Vignola & The Big Jersey Team

When one of us is down, we’re all down.
My dear friend Jimmy Bruno sadly lost his wife of 50 years unexpectedly this past weekend. He is devastated and my heart goes out to him and his family.
Jimmy is a jazz guitar legend and teacher who brings so much joy to this world with his exceptional talent and no holds barred sense of humor. Anyone who knows him is aware that he
is one-of-a-kind. He met Peggy in high school and she had been with him throughout his career beginning with his first tour with Buddy Rich at only 19 years old.
Jimmy, himself, almost lost his life in 2017 when he fell down his stairs landing him in a coma for several months, then a wheelchair. This accident was a big financial hit for him and Peggy. I am so grateful he survived and recuperated so he can continue to share his genius.
Peggy Bruno was an amazing woman who was full of life and laughter. She and Jimmy were so connected that they married each other 3 times. She was a retired emergency room nurse who also cooked, cleaned, and shopped for Jimmy. I am setting up this Go Fund Me in the hopes that Jimmy will be able to get help in these areas so his house does not overwhelm him or affect his health. My goal is for him to have peace of mind and not to be worried about expenses and trying to handle everything in the household himself.
Please consider donating any amount to help Jimmy along as he grieves and adjusts to a new
normal. Thank you.
