Domestic violence vigil is Sunday

Join the Pinellas County Domestic Violence Task Force at 7 p.m. Sunday for a candlelight vigil to remember the victims and others whose lives have been impacted by domestic violence. According to the task force, abusers last year killed 12 people in Pinellas and five cases were classified as murder-suicides — both unusually high numbers. The vigil will be held at Largo Central Park, 101 Central Park Drive, at the corner of East Bay and Seminole. Observers will meet at the reflecting pond near the flags. Free parking. Candles will be provided. For more information, call Frieda Widera at (727) 586-7481.

Fundraiser's goal: kidney transplant

Elks Lodge 1525, 1240 San Christopher Drive, will host a buffet lunch from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. Sunday to help raise money for a Holiday woman's kidney transplant. Christine Curti, 50, was born with one kidney, which is now failing, resulting in end-stage renal disease. The National Foundation for Transplants says the dialysis patient needs a $250,000 transplant plus lifelong care. Lunch tickets cost $8. The event will feature an auction, raffle, multiple drawings and entertainment by KC & the Vocal Chords. For more information, call Joyce Van Eck at (727) 733-3318. Tax-deductible donations can be made online at transplants.org or by sending a payment with "in honor of Christine Curti" on the memo line to the NFT Florida Transplant Fund, 5350 Poplar Ave., Suite 430, Memphis, TN 38119.
