“Da Mayor” Richie Perez has done many a kind deed to support so many different organizations in this town via his connection with the San Jose Sharks. Now, he has occasion to ask Gilroyans to return his generosity to help his nephew, John Vasquez, battle multiple myeloma, a cancer that starts in the plasma cells in bone marrow. John needs a bone marrow transplant, and the medical costs are soaring. Chef de Gilroy Cuisine Dave Bozzo is handling BBQ meal duties for the Saturday, April 27 fundraising event at Christmas Hill Park which begins at noon. It’s $20 for an adult meal ticket and there will be a raffle, too. Richie and the Vasquez family are asking for raffle item donations. If you have an item, call Bobbie Vasquez at 408-310-5626 and, as they say, pay that Gilroy generosity forward.
