Vaccarezzas Still Raising Funds for Families of Parkland Victims

At a fund raising event held on Sunday  Feb. 25, thoroughbred owner Carlo Vaccarezza and his family raised approximately  $160,000 for families of victims in the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.
The event was held at Frank & Dino’s restaurant, which Vaccarezza owns, in Boca Raton.

Frank & Dino’s will continue to accept donations for “at least a couple more days,” Vaccarezza said on Tuesday. Donations can be made by contacting Frank & Dino’s at (561) 218-4636.

Vaccarezza’s sons Nick and Mike are students at Stoneman Douglas.  They were both at the school on Feb. 14, and were among students who were not harmed.

Two horses that Vaccarezza campaigned, Little Nick and Little Mike, were named for his sons.
In 2012, Little Mike won three Grade 1  turf stakes—the Breeders’ Cup Turf at Santa Anita, the Woodford Reserve at Churchill Downs and the Arlington Million at Arlington Park.
