In late September 2013, members of the Northwest Ohio Piping Industry joined other Toledo-area supporters at the Pinnacle in Maumee for a night of live music, appetizers and drinks.

The fundraiser’s main attraction was Carly Kudzia, who has the rare, fatal genetic disease that causes her to age rapidly, roughly at a rate of about eight to 10 years for every calendar year.
