With a personal connection to pediatric brain tumors, two Dana Point business owners held a charity gala to help raise funds for that cause.

Brio Tuscany Grille owners Enzo and Jill Scognamiglio, who have been working with the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation for a number of years, recently held a gala in order to raise money for research.

The Scognamiglios enjoy holding events for the foundation, especially after it helped their daughter, Lisa.

“We’ve supported the work of the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation since our daughter Lisa was diagnosed with a brain tumor when she was four,” said Enzo Scognamiglio. “The research the PBTF has funded has given her a longer and more meaningful life.”

The money raised will go to the foundation for research, and to help support programs to help young people. The foundation benefits more than 28,000 children nationwide who are living with the diagnosis of a brain tumor.
