Between students and faculty the school was able to raise $15,000 for the Vergilios. The family did not want to speak on camera, but did say they were amazed by the support of the community.
In the last month the Virgilio family has lost something they can never get back, they lost the lives of their loved ones in a terrible car accident. But they do not have to cope with the tragedy alone. The local community showed an incredible amount of love and support at a benefit today for the family.
A $20 ticket price for the fundraiser was charged along with profits from a silent auction going to the family. Boylan High School Principle Vince Mcguire was also on hand to share good news about the schools fund raising efforts.
