Trainer Carlo Vaccarezza, whose sons Mike and Nick survived the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida Feb. 14, raised approximately $160,000 for the families of the victims during a fundraiser held Sunday at his family restaurant, Frank and Dino’s. The event, which spanned much of the afternoon and evening, featured appearances by a number of well-known racing personalities, including Eclipse Award-winning trainer Chad Brown and Gulfstream Park host and analyst Acacia Courtney.

“I want to thank everyone for coming out and supporting the families of these victims,” said Vaccarezza. “I want to thank the horse racing community for all their support and their time and donations.”

Donations to the cause can still be made by calling 561-218-4636.
