Save the Boobies!

This Sunday in North Tampa, Skipper’s Smokehouse will host the 3rd Annual Susan G. Komen for the Cure fundraiser. A well-known charity, the Komen Foundation raises funds for breast cancer research. The primary way they do this is through a yearly 3-day walk that covers 60 miles. Participants must raise $2300 to walk, and many work in teams to achieve this. This particular event will help raise money for a Tampa team called Saving Second Base. Its members, along with so many other people, have been personally affected by breast cancer, so this is a cause they feel strongly about.

The festivities will kick off at 4 in the afternoon, and will feature a wide variety of music from Tampa Bay area bands: John Hancock, IPD, The Show, Sons of Hippies, Someday Souvenir, and Pitbull Toddler. There will also be an appearance by Cowhead from 102.5 FM. To help with the fundraising, local businesses such as Ella’s Americana Folk Art Café (remember our very first blog article?), Pepin, and Massage Envy of South Tampa have donated items for a silent auction. There will also be a 50/50 raffle, and food and drink specials.

It’s good to see so many people and businesses coming together to support such a great cause. It’s even more proof that Tampa is a great place to live! We hope that you can all make it out to have fun, hear great local music, and support and encourage Saving Second Base.

Skipper's Smokehouse is located at 910 Skipper Road in Tampa, 813-977-6474.
