MIDDLE GROVE — Sandy Foster of Village Pizzeria and Ristorante hosted another tremendously successful Toast to the TaTa’s fundraiser on Aug. 2. The event was attended by 300 people and raised $35,000 dollars to benefit To Life, a local cancer support organization, as well as local Chef Brady Duhame who is battling male breast cancer.

In addition to the fundraiser, the goal of the event was to raise awareness of male breast cancer. While the disease is most associated with women, 2,700 men are diagnosed annually.

Sandy credits the event’s success to fantastic support, including, Joseph Carr of Josh Cellars, wine & spirit vendors who donated silent auction items, volunteers and the 300 generous supporters who came out to make a difference.

Village Pizzeria and Ristorante will be hosting another charity event, Tee Off F’ore TaTa’s Golf Tournament, Saturday Sept. 17 at Hales Mills Country Club, 146 Steele Rd, Johnstown.
