Hoofin' It for Healthy Hooters Holds Fundraiser Tonight

Event to raise money for breast cancer research will be held at 7 tonight.

Go Green for Pink, a St. Patty’s Day party and fundraiser, will be held tonight, Friday, March 18, at Colonial Tavern on Hawley Road.

The event starts at 7 p.m. and is open to the public. Enjoy refreshments, a cash bar and dancing to a disc jockey. There will also be a raffle, silent auction and prizes for the “grooviest green get-ups."

Raffle/silent auction items include an iPod Shuffle, a $200 gift card for ticketmaster.com, ski package, gym membership, restaurant certificates, salon and spa services, gift baskets, bottles of wine, fine jewelry, tickets to Connecticut attractions and more.

It’s a “party with a purpose,” with net proceeds going to Susan G. Koman for the CureTM. The party is hosted by team “Hoofin’ it for Healthy Hooters,” which will participate in the Koman for the Cure 3-day/60-mile walk in Boston, Mass., in July. The team is made up of Oxford residents Tina Aldo, Jennifer Coan-Mahmood, Kelly Donohue and Tara Gurecki. Each walker must raise a minimum of $2,300 in donations to participate in the walk. Funds from the Komen 3-day events are invested in breast cancer research, education and community outreach programs.

Tickets for Go Green for Pink are $10 and can be purchased at the door.
