A group of enterprising young Verona cousins have been making bracelets, necklaces and earrings together for the past few months and today, Sunday, July 8, they will be selling them all to raise money for Team Zoey.
That is the group created by Verona residents Laura and Ian Penny to raise money for the Progeria Research Foundation, which is trying to find a treatment for the disease that is affecting their toddler, Zoey. Progeria is a rare condition that produces rapid aging and premature death in children.
The jewelry sale is happening at 73 Otsego Road, which is just off Linden Avenue, from noon to 2 p.m. today. Stop by and lend your support–there’s something at every price point.
