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.
