“What is a mere individual to do? Live as sane and decent a life as you can, love your family and friends and understand that everybody is in this together." 

 · Ron Smith



Our wonderful friend, Sergio Vitale sent me an invitation to a wine dinner next week at Aldo’s Ristorante Italiano. It is so enticing, I asked him if I could share it with you.

A portion of the proceeds from the diner will benefit the Ron Smith Pancreatic Cancer Fund at Hopkins.

The Vitale Family doted over us during Ron’s illness, lovingly prepared and delivered delicious meals to us, and they continue to be a very important part of my life. I am blessed to be part of their family and grateful for their generosity.

Having dined at Aldo’s many, many times, I know it will be una serata favolos!

I hope to see you there. Ciao! And Cheers!
