The Coluccio family, friends and donors gathered in Brooklyn for the 8th Annual ‘Toast to Life’ Memorial Fundraiser held in the memory and honor of the late Domenico Coluccio.
Domenico died in a tragic boating accident and also suffered from Behcet’s Disease. The family began the Toast to Life 8 years ago in his memory, with donations going to two charitable organizations that were close to Domenico’s heart – the American Behcet’s Disease Association of Rochester, MN and The Children’s Inn of Bethesda, MD.
The family owns and operates the legendary D.Coluccio & Sons Italian specialty food importer and retail store, located in the heart of Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. Rocco and Enza Coluccio, the parents of Domenico also have three other children, Maria, Rocco Jr. and Giovanna.
