BERLIN - An evening of casual dinner, dancing and cocktails, with a raffle and rock paper scissors contest can be enjoyed before the weekend ends.
As part of fundraising efforts by You Can Love Life LLC, a local not for profit organization that collects cards or donations (to purchase gift cards) to give to patients treating a cancer diagnosis, Tammy Campanelli will be holding an event in the American Legion Hall, 154 Porters Pass, this Sunday from 5 to 9 p.m. The organization’s fundraising goal is $10,000 and they are about one third of the way there, Campanelli said.
“The event is all paid for through sponsorships, so any money raised will go directly to purchasing gift cards and helping the patients,” Campanelli said.
Tickets for the festivities are $5 and gift cards are encouraged to be brought.
For those unable to attend but still would like to help the organization, a gift card or check, payable to “You Can Love Life” can be sent to 91 Dayl Drive, Berlin, CT, 06037. Gift cards can also be dropped off at Kensington Auto Service, 89 Harding St., and XSalonce Hair Lounge at 526 New Britain Road.
