Boobie Bash

Women's Breast Cancer Walk/Run/Benefit

Thurs, Oct 18th @ 7PM

Rumors Bar, Wilton Drive
In our effort to attract more women to the club we have created this event. We need your help to make our event a success. Please take a poster from us at the run/walk. Share our Facebook event to your timeline. Attend the event - It's not just for the ladies. Here's all the info:
The inaugural Boobie Bash Run/Walk/Benefit will raise money for breast cancer screenings for medically under-served women in Broward County. This free event will bring together our community for a 1.5 mile journey which begins/ends at Rumors Bar in Wilton Manors. No preregistration is required. 
The Boobie Bash will raise funds for the Broward Health Foundation’s Lisa Boccard Breast Cancer Fund. The Fund provides breast cancer screenings and treatment, if necessary, to women in our community.  100% of all money raised on October 18 will be donated to the Fund and all money stays local. 
So, lace up your sneakers and don your festive pink attire for this casual walk/run in Wilton Manors, starting at Rumors Bar (2426 Wilton Drive).
A raffle will be held with a chance to win great prizes including a pair of P!NK concert tickets at the BB&T Center.

Dining Schedule

By Tim Taylor, Dining Coordinator
In August we tried a new place - Bowlicious.   Everyone who went seemed to like their offerings and the variety they provide to our usual venue rotations.  They are also giving us 10% off on Wednesday nights.  They are now added to our regular Wednesday rotation. 

In September we tried a new place for breakfast since there were 5 Saturdays - Toast.   This is a diner style venue with lots of parking.  It is located on the East side of Federal Highway just south of Oakland Park Blvd.  Let me know how you liked it!

We also now have a 10% discount on run nights at Spatch Peri Peri.  Ask for your discount card at the register so they can use it on your order.  It’s a little different process that at our other places but it should work. 

Please let me know if you find any other new venues that meet our requirements:  group seating, outdoor seating if possible, reasonable pricing, vegetarian options, free and ample parking, and close proximity to our run locations. Keep your suggestions
