On Jan. 26, 2013, an emergency fundraiser is being held for Anthony Socci, 28, who is in desperate need of a kidney transplant. Hosted by the Step by Step Organ Transplant Association, which was founded by George Marcello, a two-time organ recipient, the fundraiser will be held at Riviera Parque Banquet Centre in Vaughan. The event will be a night of dinner and dancing, with an open bar, door prizes and poker tournament. Tickets are $100. From February 5-22, 2013, Step by Step’s official torchbearer Khaled Khatib will embark on a 500-kilometre search for Anthony’s hero as he carries the Torch of Life from Ottawa to Toronto.
