Press Release, May 15, 2018

MIDDLETOWN — Appetite for Life, a month-long fundraiser that benefits Middlesex Hospital Cancer Center, will kick off May 30 with a party from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Tuscany Grill, 120 College Street in Middletown. A second party will be held June 6 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at The Essex, 30 Main Street in Centerbrook. Each party will feature beer, wine and spirit tastings, music and a chance to win great prizes.

Party tickets are $20 per person. All proceeds directly support Middlesex Hospital Cancer Center patients.

Since 2010, Appetite for Life has raised more than $145,000 for cancer patient support services at the Cancer Center, which has locations in Middletown and Westbrook. These services include nurse navigation, social work, clinical trials and integrative medicine therapy.

Many restaurants throughout Middlesex County participate in Appetite for Life, which is in its ninth year. As a patron, a percentage of your bill will be donated to the Cancer Center if you dine at a participating restaurant during the month of June.

“We are grateful to the dozens of restaurants participating in Appetite for Life, which benefits the Middlesex Hospital Cancer Center and our patients,” says Sarah Moore, director of development at Middlesex Hospital. “All proceeds support local cancer patient care and support services. Please join us, and eat out for a good cause!”
