It helps to have some famous friends.
Actress Debra Messing — star of TV’s Will & Grace, Smash and The Starter Wife — is friends with Blake and Mike Henry, who, as Messing notes in the video below, are very involved in the Angelo Vayas AV Hero Fund.
In a video to promote the 2nd Annual AV Hero Fund Golf, Tennis & Dinner Outing on June 12 at the Maplewood Country Club, Messing recounts how Angelo Vayas — the proprietor of the Village Trattoria who passed away in 2015 from brain cancer — was “always the first to give.” Messing also reports that, in addition to funding cancer research, the AV Hero Fund has helped local families in need, paying medical expenses for one families, a trip for another family, and providing funds for college for a student who had lost his father.
