News About This Year's Beer & Wine Tasting Event

2020 Beer & Wine Tasting Cancelled due to COVID-19 - please consider a donationThe Romito Foundation has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Beer and Wine Tasting Event.  We will be back with our event next year and the planning has started already.

The decision was difficult for us for many reasons.  This year's unprecedented event known as Covid-19 is at the root of these reasons and it is our sincere hope that you and your loved ones are healthy and gainfully employed. 

Our event relies on the generosity of both our sponsors and volunteers.  Our Beer and Wine has always been donated and it has been a tough year for these sponsors.  Our Silent Auction Items are also donated and again we find ourselves asking too much of our community. 

Our families living with DMD are even more at health risk than the general population and while we enjoy bringing everyone together this is not meant to be this year.

DMD continues to affect our community and the Romito Foundation continues to look for ways to help.  We are exploring virtual style events and looking forward to our future outings!

While the event may be canceled this year our need to raise money remains.  We have decided to have an online auction with a select few items.  Did we say we have the best community?

We ask that in lieu of attending that you donate the same amount of your ticket purchase at $65 per person.  Could you do that? Can you challenge your friends to do the same?

Now Your Shopping Can Support The Romito Foundation Through Amazon Smile

About Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

Because there is no cure for DMD, the life expectancy for a diagnosed child is the late twenties.

Duchenne’s muscular dystrophy (DMD) is an inherited muscle wasting disease characterized by progressive muscle weakness. This muscle weakness occurs when an affected child’s muscle tissue is unable to produce a structural protein called dystrophin. Without this vital protein, muscles suffer significant damage and eventually die.

The progression of DMD causes orthopedic complications, respiratory failure, and heart failure. Boys with DMD are diagnosed in early childhood and are confined to a wheelchair by early adolescence. Because there is no cure for DMD, the life expectancy for a diagnosed child is the late twenties.
