Vinny, Vin, & Charlie Support Fund

On Wednesday afternoon Vinny and Vin received the devastating news that their apartment burned down while they were at work.   The accident started in a neighbor's unit and the fire quickly spread to all three floors. 

The damage from the fire destroyed many of their belongings, some replaceable, some not.  Luckily Charlie was found, unharmed, hiding behind a bookshelf after the fire was extinguished.  The boys and their doggo have been displaced as the apartment is now set to be demolished because the damage was so extreme. 

We are hoping to raise funds for them so that they can get back on their feet and move on from this traumatic event.  They lost many essentials, including their beds, clothing, as well as musical equipment and family heirlooms.
