Last month, my good friend Vito Bruno produced a concert celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Freestyle at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City. He had promised that a portion of the proceeds from the event would benefit the Cristian Rivera Foundation and this week, he handed me a $6,000 check. That really means a lot to me. $6,000 is the single biggest donation anyone has given me at one time and it’s going to go so far in helping to cure Pontine Glioma. Vito knows how much Cristian meant to me and how important it is to raise awareness of this terrible disease and find its cure. He said that he’ll do whatever it takes to catapult this issue into the spotlight and for his dedication and generosity, I am unbelievably grateful.
