Support Gionni’s Family

Our dear friends suffered unimaginable loss January 23rd when their son, brother, nephew, and friend, Gionni was murdered in his classroom at school. Gionni had just turned 18 and was putting in the work to graduate.

His aunt Cyerra’s friends and coworkers at East Village Spa created this fundraiser so that his family can focus on healing and laying their child to rest with less stress about day to day expenses and the cost of a funeral.

Gionni’s aunt Cyerra says “He had the best sense of humor and loved to play around. He knew everyone and everyone knew him. He would walk in and light up the room with his smile. Everyone gravitated towards Gionni.
He would walk in and give everyone in the room a hug. You felt Gionni’s love. No matter your mood you felt his love. He was natural protector he would care for your feelings before his own. He wanted everyone around him to be ok.”

Please help us show this dear family some love.
