AFF Fundraiser Hosted by Enza Sambataro

Enza Sambataro hosted an Arredondo Family Foundation (AFF) fundraiser in her private home in Wayland, MA on September 20, 2015.  Over 100 people gathered to support AFF programs that will provide emergency funds to military families who have experienced a military related suicide as well as education efforts to support the siblings of fallen troops in their educational expenses.

Funds were raised through sponsorships, personal donations as well as both a  live and silent auction.  Some auction items that were available included a vacation home in The West Indies, Nevis, unique sporting experiences, celebrity chef dining experience and much more. In addition to DJ Felix and Louis Bello Jr. providing music, multiple restaurants provided wonderful, tasty food to all who attended. Photos from the event can be seen in Boston Common Magazine.

Thank you to all of the volunteers and sponsors for making this evening a success.
