Girls of Summer Fundraiser in Phoenixville Raises Money & Awareness For Local Charities Friday April 23rd



Friday, April 23rd, 6-9pm

Fundraiser & Family Event at Molly Maguire’s Restaurant & Pub, 2nd Floor and Back Deck, Phoenixville, PA.


Join the girls of summer- Christine Tarlecki, Lorien Porrini and Tina Taney as they kick off Summer 2010 and help raise funds for three very important charities.

It’s a great night to support these charities! The charities were decided by the three ladies, each one being close to their hearts.


Admission is a $10 donation for live music, drink specials and tickets for raffle prizes! The awesome Celtic Spirit  will be playing, and raffle prizes from local Phoenixville establishments will be offered! Prize donations from The Phoenixville Area YMCA, A Charmed Spirit, Perry’s Place in Spring City, MISSION products and many others, including restaurant gift cards, jewelry and movie and ‘sweet tooth’ baskets.

Raffle tickets are just $1 each or 6 for $5. Molly Maguire’s will be offering drink specials, jello shots and food specials during the evening.


Christine Tarlecki’s charity is the Jon Bon Jovi Philadelphia Soul Foundation, which helps local residents break the cycle of poverty and get into new homes and jobs, and is co-founded by musician and humanitarian Jon Bon Jovi. Christine offers support to the JBJ Soul Foundation in their effort to rebuild pride in one's self and one's community - one SOUL at a time.


Lorien Porrini’s charity is the Eryn Cooper Benefit Fund. Eryn is Lorien’s Goddaughter, and has had both of her kidneys removed as a result of a very serious disease she contracted when she was 18 months old, and has to be transported by her parents to an Orlando area children's hospital every two days to undergo extensive blood cleansing procedures. Eryn is currently on a waiting list and in dire need of two kidneys. “I started to understand the love of a child because of Eryn,” says Lorien. “The smile on her tiny face as a baby when she would look at me melted my heart. The day her mom told me she was sick at just 15 months was one of the worst days of my life. The day she came down my steps as my little flower girl was one of the best!  People ask why I am doing this fundraiser, it’s because I never want a last moment with the strongest person I have ever met and she is only 9.”


Tina Taney's is for Cervical Cancer. It is treatable, and she is raising money & raising awareness, and to help out those women who might not be in a position to be tested.



Fundraiser & Family Event is sponsored by Celtic Spirit, Molly Maguire’s Restaurant & Pub (Corner of Main & Bridge Streets, Phoenixville) and The House of Flowers & Gifts (27 S Main St, Phoenixville). 6-9pm, $10 donation at the door- Second floor and back deck!
