This is going to be a really cool event and space is limited!!
TREE CLIMBING Fundraiser for Louie Vaccaro by the guys at Tree Monkey Fun!
Okay, I know you guys have been hit a lot. But this is very unique!
First of all you get to hang out at the Town & Country Club! This is a very private property that you usually can only enter by invitation.
Next, you get to learn to climb trees sadly with ropes and harnesses from professional tree climbers who travel the world climbing trees! They climb for fun, but they also teach tribes in jungles how to climb safely so they can get their food and needed medicines with less injuries. It's an amazing company.
Please come and support this amazing film "Zayton!"
The film is an amazing documentary being donated as a fundraiser for the Vaccaro Fund and is playing in April 24th at the Fairfax Theater! Check out the poster!

I'm trying not to send as many emails as before in hopes that I only communicate when needed. I just wanted to remind you that the Native Sons Event is on March 22nd. It will be at the Fairfax Pavilion and will be an amazing event. There will be a BBQ, beer & wine and lots of great music from the band Beso Negro and a few others.
Purchase your tickets early and help us raise the roof for Louie!
It is very humbling for anyone to ask for help. However, we are very close friends of the Vaccaro family and know that they are in need. We would like to ask that you consider donating to this fund.
On Christmas Eve Louie Vaccaro, a Sophomore from Drake High School went out with a group of his closest friends after family celebrations. These kids are very close and love each other very much. They were driving at night on Lucas Valley Road and a terrible accident occurred. The large SUV was filled with 6 passengers (4 Drake students, 1 former Drake student and Louie's cousin visiting from Florida for the holidays.) The vehicle rolled several times and the injuries are serious.
Louie Vaccaro shattered 1 vertebra and blew 2 discs in two additional vertebra. Another passenger (Dameon Reeder) has a fractured spine and Marco Domitri has a broken collar bone. All the passengers have some minor injuries additionally as well as emotional trauma. However Louie's injuries are the most severe and is the focus of this funding website. We are working to assess the needs of the other kids and have offered to help them as well. Stay tuned for an additional information on their needs as well.
Louie has been on and off life support and in an induced coma for the better part of the week since the accident. Our hope is that he can begin to breathe on his own and can be taken off of breathing tubes and life support soon. His surgery took about 11 hours. The doctors have given a 10% chance of Louie walking again, but we've seen miracles and are very hopeful that this will increase as his condition improves. He is currently (12/31/13) at Marin General Hospital, however his care will be moved soon to a facility more suited for long term care in either Redwood City or Terra Linda.
The purpose of this website is to raise money for Louie's family as the needs will be ongoing for "years" and the costs will be overwhelming. The website will also provide an arena for medical updates, a place to communicate with the community, a place to post a Wish List for needs to be met, and a site that you can share with your networks to help spread the word. We will also be launching a public calendar where we will schedule fundraising events, needs to be met, visitations, etc.
Thank you once again on behalf of the Vaccaro Family. We hope to see you at an event soon.
Chris: Thanks for supporting the Fairfax Car Show. You picked my 1940 Ford Woody Station Wagon this year and I appreciate it. In return I'm adding to your Son's Recovery fund. My wife and I have you and your family in our prayers and hope Louie will soon be well.
Again thanks for your support.
