ELMWOOD PARK, N.J. — Students and staff at St. Leo’s School in Elmwood Park can dress down on Monday, Jan. 25 if they make a donation to help a local family.
A "black and white" dress down day will help raise money for "Rare and Beautiful."
Rare and Beautiful is a foundation run by the Ingui family of Elmwood Park. They started the organization to raise awareness for a rare genetic disorder their daughter Denise Ingui, 15, was diagnosed with in 2015.
Ingui has Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome, a rare disease that affects the gene that suppresses tumor growth, greatly increasing the risk of cancer.
For more information call St. Leo's at 201-796-5156. Send contributions to "Rare is Beautiful," PO Box 551, Elmwood Park, NJ, 07407.
