A Dinner & Wine Pairing fundraiser for a 2-year-old boy diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia is set for Aug. 22 at Fratelli’s Italian Kitchen, 3915 Mission Ave., in Oceanside.
The event, called “Fierce Pierce,” benefits Pierce Kelly, who is undergoing chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. He has been at the hospital since early April.
To be eligible for a bone marrow transplant, he needed someone with a similar immune system. His bone marrow donor is a woman from France.
The fundraiser is being organized by Fratelli’s co-owner Brandon Lorber, who is a cousin of Pierce’s mother.
The event starts at 6:30 p.m. The dinner includes four courses with five wine pairings for $75. Reserve at (760) 696-9007.
