BRIGHT team In It Together is at it again, with its second annual fundraising dinner set for the Grand Ballroom at Stoney Creek’s LIUNA Gardens at 526 Winona Road.

Team captain and breast cancer survivor Donna Stampone joins her cousin, Mark Calcagni, and his mom Rita, a member of our breast cancer community -along with other family members – in organizing the April 6 evening of fun, food and great music.

Doors open at 5.30 p.m. and the full sit-down meal begins at 6.30, with the sweet table at 10.30.

The entertainment – a rockin’ performance by Pete Stampone’s band Ragdoll – gets going around 9.30-10 p.m.

The evening will include a silent auction, a raffle with many terrific door prizes, a photo booth and a range of games.

All the proceeds will go toward In It Together’s fundraising efforts for the BRIGHT Run. Last year’s event welcomed almost 180 guests and raised about $7,200 for local breast cancer research.

Tickets are $50 each for adults and $25 each for children and must be purchased in advance. To purchase tickets, contact Mark at, Rita at or Donna at by March 15.
