Drinking event to raise money for breast cancer foundation

Free shots, ,2 well drinks and draft beers and a male wet T-shirt contest.

All of these will make up Booze for Boobs, a fundraiser sponsored by AOI Media and Bar One/Level.

AOI Media also sponsors Gator Stompin', a celebration that traditionally involves people visiting several bars and restaurants at the end of spring and fall semesters.

UF event management junior Jamie Turret said she and three other UF students, Mandi Frishman, Mallory Jones and Michael McQuillen wanted to do a fundraiser for a good cause.

"We picked breast cancer because it hits close to home for many people," Turret said.

Turret's mother is a breast-cancer survivor.

October is breast-cancer awareness month. "Because there are a lot of fundraisers that involve walks and races, we wanted to do something different," Turret said.

The doors will open Wednesday at 9:30 p.m., and there will be a ,7 cover charge.

All ,7 will go to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure, a non-profit organization for breast cancer research.

"We wanted to target the student community, and what better way to do so than to throw a really great party," Turret said.

Turret said they want everyone to wear pink to show the support of the student community toward breast-cancer awareness.

The man who raises the most money for the foundation during the wet T-shirt contest will win a ,100 bar tab.
