MANORVILLE - Family, friends and neighbors came together tonight to help raise money for the Trinca family, who lost two of its members in a car crash last Saturday.
Keri Trinca and her 7-year-old son Jason died in the crash. Christopher, 2, was released from Stony Brook University Medical Center earlier today. His sister, Marialena, is still in serious condition.
Besides having to pay for admission, those who attended the fundraiser also bough raffle tickets for things like an iPad, Rangers tickets and even jewelry. Guests even got to watch a performance including competition dancers from Jason Trinca's dance school, Royalenova.
Organizers created the fundraiser just yesterday, giving the dancers just 24 hours to choreograph and more than 60 businesses to donate items.
