  TOMS RIVER – A fundraiser for a little girl fighting cancer will be held at Battle River Brewing, 69 Main Street, Toms River on August 10 from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

  The $65 ticket includes a 2 hour Do It Yourself craft, two beers with discounted refills, and pizza by nearby Capone’s.

  A portion of ticket sales goes to the Colavito Family Fund. Sophia (“Fi”) Colavito was just four years old when she started suffering headaches that weren’t going away. Her parents, Lindsay and Michael, took her to doctors and learned there was a tumor suppressing the optic nerve, and it was spreading to her spine and the lining of her brain.
