BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — Local politicians will be pulling pints and mixing cocktails for a good cause Oct. 11 at Happy Hour for Hope, an American Cancer Society fundraiser.

The event, which benefits Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Bridgeport, will be held from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at Milano Wine Bar & Pizzeria, 281 Fairfield Avenue in downtown Bridgeport.

Guest bartenders for the night are state Reps. Steve Stafstrom and Christopher Rosario, Bridgeport City Council President Tom McCarthy and Trumbull Planning & Zoning Chair Fred Garrity, Jr.

Fairfield-based blues & funk band The Lionfish will provide the entertainment.

A $20-per-person donation includes a selection of Italian appetizers from Milano chef/owner Freddy Tomaj.

“Milano is a family restaurant and we know how cancer affects families so we are so pleased to be hosting this upcoming Happy Hour for Hope and to help raise funds that will benefit families impacted by breast cancer in Greater Bridgeport, “Tomaj said.

Attendees are asked to wear something pink and there will be prizes for the “pinkest” man, woman and couple. There will also be a drawing for gift certificates.
