The Zepf Center repeats its successful fundraiser, “Don’t Skirt the Issue – Help” on Friday, October 20 at the Zepf Community Center, with proceeds directed to developing housing specifically for mothers to continue working on their recovery without being separated from their children, the #1 reason why women leave treatment. Last year’s event raised almost $30,000 for the project.

“Don’t Skirt the Issue – Help” is an evening of music, friends and fun featuring Glass City Talent 419 and Guy in the 419 – Pat McCarty. Emcees for the evening include Melissa Voetsch of 13 ABC and Fred LeFebvre from 1370 WSPD.

The event features food from area restaurants, including Ciao, Zia’s, Real Seafood, Saba’s Bistro, LaScola, and Manhattan’s. Desserts are being planned by women in recovery. Amazing gifts are lined up for the live and silent auctions including a trip to Turks and Caicos with airfare, an apartment in France, sailing cruises, dinner and wine tasting at Plat 8. Tickets are $60.00 each – for tickets or more information, please visit www.zepfcenter.org or call 419-841-7701.
