Breeders' Cup-winning owner and trainer Carlo Vaccarezza, whose sons Nick and Mike survived the Parkland shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Feb 14, raised approximately $160,000 for the families of the victims during a fundraiser Sunday at the family restaurant.
Vaccarezza's restaurant, Frank and Dino's, hosted the event from 2-9 p.m. A check from Gulfstream was presented to Vaccarezza by Gulfstream host and analyst Acacia Courtney and Director of Community Relations Nikki Bernstein.
“I want to thank everyone for coming out and supporting the families of these victims,” said Vaccarezza. “I want to thank the horse racing community for all their support and their time and donations.”
Donations can still be made by calling 561.218.4636.
