A just cause
Fri Jun 1 2007
A child named Toby Pannone at my daughter's preschool in Park Slope was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a relatively rare form of cancer. My daughter doesn't know Toby, but like many others, she's been moved by the news of his illness. His parents have created a blog to communicate with their friends, family and the larger community about Toby's condition and what other parents can do to help. The school, Beansprouts, recently held a very successful benefit to help raise money to assist in Toby's treatment, and this coming Thursday, there will be a benefit concert from 5:30pm-7pm at Beansprouts, located on the corner of 8th Street and Sixth Avenue in the Slope. Local kid faves Randy Kaplan and Hot Peas n Butter will perform, but more importantly, you can show your support for the family. Click here to learn more or buy tickets ($10 each).
