Why: To support Kyle & Josephine Phillipy (owners of Termini Pizzeria)
Suggested Donation: $50

In recent months, Massimo Phillipy, the 7-year old son of Kyle and Josephine Phillipy (owners of Termini Pizzeria) was unexpectedly diagnosed with a rare disease known as Adrenoleukodystrophy. ALD is a neuro-degenerative disease that affects one in 20,000 children (primarily young boys) in the United States alone. It is a disorder that is characterized by progressive brain and central nervous system deterioration. This disease is known as a “parents worst nightmare”.

Massimo is in need of a bone-marrow transplant. Bone marrow transplantation is the only known treatment that can stop the progression of this disease. There are a limited number of facilities that can specialize in this rare condition, one being The Childrens Hospital of Minnesota which has luckily found a bone marrow match for Massimo! Therefore, Massimo and his family will be relocating to Minnesota this Sunday for an undetermined amount of time. They will undoubtedly incur financial hardships beyond their means that will add on to their emotional stress. Please join us in alleviating some of the financial burden placed on this family!

Besides supporting a warm gathering of our community, Park Avenue Bar & Grill will have a live DJ, great food, and tons of drink specials for all those that participate! NJ Nets and Jets girls will be on hand to sell raffle tickets where all proceeds go straight to the family!

Great raffle prizes for your donation:

  • Nintendo Wii System Package (includes Mario Kart game , controllers and Wii Fit)
  • Flat Screen TV
  • GPS System
  • Digital Camera

  • 4 Tickets to Giants vs. Ravens
  • 2 Tickets to Jets vs. (TBD)
  • 2 tickets for Knicks vs. Bobcats
