Dinner to benefit teen recovering from cancer

Friends of the Lukowski family have started a nonprofit organization to help with the mounting costs of medical bills for Tommie’s ongoing treatment.

Tickets for the May 30 dinner are $10 for adults and $6 for children under 12. Call (732) 238-9252 for tickets or to volunteer to help.
