A lot can change in a decade.
Way back in December 2008, 400 of our friends and supporters gathered in Foxboro, Mass. for the Joe Andruzzi Foundation’s inaugural gala.
It was a very uncertain time – not only for the Foundation, but the Andruzzi family as well. Joe had been diagnosed with Burkitt’s lymphoma (an aggressive form of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma) just 18-months prior to the event and was cautiously celebrating being just over a year in remission. Meanwhile, the Foundation was navigating its infancy – having just launched in May of 2008 – and the gala marked JAF’s first major fundraising event.
