Maureen and Gary Budjinski invite the community to an evening of love, laughter, food, camaraderie, music and more to celebrate the life of their late son, Jason Budjinski, former community editor of the Town-Crier who died last year due to the rare liver disease primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC).
Budjinski also was known as Billy Boloby, his fun-loving musical alter-ego.
“Jason had been involved with many bands since high school. A few months after his diagnosis, he developed his alter-ego, Billy Boloby, as a means of coping,” his mother said. “Everything, his whole music performance, was based on that. Even though he had different bands, he was always Billy Boloby.”
Friends and family will gather for “An Evening To Remember Jason Budjinski, aka Billy Boloby” on the first anniversary of his passing.
The event will be held Thursday, June 16 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Little Munich (806 Lake Ave., Lake Worth). For directions, call (561) 932-0050.
“We held a celebration of life last year, and want to reconnect with our friends,” Maureen explained. “As parents who have gone through this, PSC is not well-known, and is something that is underfunded, so we decided to also make this a fundraiser to help others seeking a cure.”
Donations in Jason’s memory can be sent to: PSC Partners Seeking A Cure, 6900 E. Belleview Ave., Suite 202, Greenwood Village, CO 80111, made online at www.pscpartners.org or made in person at next week’s event.
The mission of PSC Partners Seeking a Cure is to provide education and support to PSC patients, families and caregivers, and to raise money to research causes, treatments and cures for the liver disease primary sclerosing cholangitis.
