By October 1, 2012

Follow me on:

Community is Greater than Cancer eventColumbus entrepreneur Vincent De Francisco is in the fight of his life, but he's not in it alone. Not only does he have his family beside him - his wife and two young boys - he has the Columbus community behind him.

The Community is Greater than Cancer event brings together friends, family, well-wishers and the Columbus business community to help raise money for treatments De Francisco needs that are not completely covered by insurance. The event kicks off tonight from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Callahan's on Park Street in the Arena District.

If you hurry you can still buy tickets to this great event that has turned into quite the "must do" event of the week with silent auction items including two football tickets in the B Deck to the OSU vs. Cal game, stained glass art from Annette Denize Prue-Rzechula of Art 4 Others, a 6 suite villa Manzanilla, Mexico and more!

Even if you can't make it out, you can still help De Francisco - or Vinny as he's known by his friends - by sending your donations here:
