VERONA, NJ - Ready to toss for a good cause? The 3rd Annual VeronaTogether Charity Cornhole Tournament is now open for registration!

This year, VeronaTogether has selected a partner whose work has a meaningful impact on a family within the Verona community. The ALGSA (Alagille Syndrome Alliance) is a favorite of local Alagille family Mike, Catrina, Leo, and “Mighty Micco” LaRosa. Alagille Syndrome is a genetic disorder that affects the liver and other vital organs. 

Mike LaRosa, Micco’s father, sits on the board of the ALGSA as well. “Our warriors need hope,” he said. “Hope that we someday find a cure for this rare disease. Hope that we someday have medicine to help relieve our warriors of their itch, aches and pains they experience. Hope that when the costs of a rare disease put financial strain on families that they have a support line.”
