A benefit is being held this weekend in Monroe to raise funds for the organization known as Female Soldiers Forgotten Heroes. The community-based transitional housing facility in Bridgeport helps homeless female veterans and their children.
The home was purchased in partnership with the Kick for Nick Foundation, named for 19- year old Nicholas Madaras of Wilton who was killed in Iraq in 2006 while on foot patrol.
The luncheon fundraiser on Saturday is being held at Roberto's Restaurant on Main Street by the Monroe Women's Club. There will be a silent auction among other events that afternoon. The benefit is from 1-4 pm. The cost is $35 per person. Tickets may be purchased by calling 203-452-8468. Questions can be directed to email@example.com.
