The second annual Miss-Fires speakeasy benefit

Print

The 2nd annual Miss-Fires Speakeasy Benefit was a smashing success. Friends and supporters came decked to the nines, stylish as can be from the bootleg era. We kicked up our heels & enjoyed a rambunctious evening of 1920’s themed fun for a great cause.

First and foremost we’d like to highlight our incredibly talented friends who were selfless in participating, lending their time, talents, and resources. They are more valuable to us than anything. We are forever grateful and appreciate the moonshine out of them. Thank you all so much.

We would especially like to thank our very own Julia Haltigan & The Sleep No More band for bringing down the house with their stellar performance.

Much thanks to Thrasher magazine’s DJ Wez for keeping the party on it’s toes with the dance jams throughout the night. Many attendees played their hand at roulette that was so graciously lent to us by our great friends The Grumpy Bastards classic car club. And a lucky bunch of patrons received a portrait drawn by sketch artist Anthony Kieren. Our fantastic sponsors were responsible for the high dollar value raffles where all proceeds went to benefit breast cancer.

This years Miss-Fires Speakeasy benefit supported our fellow moto lady’s breast cancer foundation her family started for her beloved aunt who died at the age of 34. They gifted the fundraiser last year with a $500 check so yes, this is a bit personal for us. Here is a link to the foundation..

Last year, with your help, we raised over $5000 at the party to support KIDSPOT; one of the MissFires’ Moms business, keeping her kids autism clinic doors open while she was being treated for breast cancer and incapable of working. In addition to other fundraising efforts we were able to pay her business expenses for the months needed. In the meantime, they found someone to take over the lease, joining with her partner so the business that her mom started continues to treat kids on the autism spectrum today. http://mykidspot.net/

This year we are thrilled to announce we are able to contribute $4000 to the Rusi Foundation and their goals to build a new cancer center. Thank you everyone who supported our club helping us to join the fight against breast cancer.

And last but not least,

A huge thank you to all of our sponsors!
