My friends Jerry, Lia, Thomas and Joe Vigorito know the challenge of Alzheimer’s.
Their mother, Mrs. Vigorito, has Alzheimer’s. This is a terrible disease that steals it’s victims of their memories and life. Alzheimer’s also steals these victims’ families of their memories and interactions with their loved one.
On Februay 16 at FTC Stage One (70 Sanford Street, Fairfield), Band Together CT will be performing in honor of Mrs. Vigorito and raising money for the Connecticut Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. Lia Vigorito wanted to use her birthday to honor her Mother, take action and make a difference for this important cause.
Band Together CT was founded by Rob Fried and Jerry Vigorito and they perform “community minded musical events” to benefit important and chairitable causes like Near and Far aid, the Pilot House for children with special needs, and the Haiti relief project. Band Together CT has used concerts to help raise over $850,000 for local charities and families. Also, they have worked with Paul Newman and Meryl Streep to raise millions to protect Connecticut farmland. We are honored to have them performing for a cause that hits so close to home for all of us.
