Starting on Tuesday, October 29th through Saturday, November 2nd, friends and family will be hosting many fundraising events in honor of the late Joseph Venitelli, Sr. Joe passed earlier this year on April 9th, while waiting for a heart transplant. Joe was only 52 years old and he left behind two young children, Joseph Jr., 14 and ErynBella, 12, and his wife of 15 years, Maureen.
