Gruppioni was killed on Saturday when Nathan Louis Campbell, described as a homeless drifter, drove his car down Ocean Front Walk, allegedly to inflict as much damage to others as possible.

A portion of all meals and drinks purchased at The Candle Café will be donated to the “When You Wish” non-profit fundraiser set up for the victims of Venice Boardwalk tragedy. Members of “When You Wish” will also be at the vigil to answer any questions and to accept donations.
