20th Annual Dinner for a cause

Dana-Farber Cancer Research on myelofibrosis

On November 27th, Dante Muzzioli, and his wife, Janet, hosted the 20th Annual Dinner for a Cause. Each year the fundraiser is for a different cause. This year's focus was myelofibrosis, a type of rare bone marrow cancer, in remembrance of their close friend, Richie Lane, who passed away from this cancer. In addition to the friends, family, and local Belmont community, there were also elite athletes in attendance at this charity event.
