Business community to help raise funds for local woman

MORE: Read more news from Fredericksburg

Members of the local business community will tend bar at a downtown Fredericksburg establishment the next four Thursday evenings to raise money for a local woman who has been diagnosed with brain cancer.

“Tipping for a Cause” will be held at Vivify Burger & Lounge’s rooftop bar at 314 William St. All tips will go to area resident, mother and personal chef Bridgid Blakesley.

 The events will be held between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. this Thursday and the next three Thursdays. Each week there will be a themed group of bartenders, with area commercial real estate brokers Ben Keddie, Donny Self, Mike Degen, Sharon Schmidt, Jamie Scully, Chris Waller and Heather Hagerman staffing the bar this week.

Xavier Richardson, Joe Wilson, Linda Worrell, Dori Eglevsky, Jud Honaker and members of the Wack family are scheduled to man the bar the next couple of Thursdays. The bartender groups will compete against each other to see who can raise the most money for Blakesley.
