Jeans Day - New York (2015)
Jeans for Genes Fundraising for FIRST
Brianne Wopperer and Andrew Costantino are the parents of 16-month-old Andrew, who is affected with ARCI-CIE type ichthyosis. For the second year, in celebration Rare Disease Day, Brianne and Andrew teamed up with Tony Walker & Company, a retailer in Williamsville, New York that specializes in high-end denim-perfect for Genes for Jeans Day! TW&C donated 10% of sales on February 28 to FIRST. Andrew and Brianne even had little Andrew at the store and answered questions about ichthyosis! What a wonderful way to create awareness. Last year’s event raised more than $500 for FIRST and this year’s event will prove to be just as successful. Many thanks to Andrew, Brianne and young Andrew for their efforts on behalf of FIRST.
