Remedy’s, a popular tavern chain with two locations in Henderson, will sponsor and host the 3rd Annual Kennedy Kares fundraising event at it’s St. Rose Parkway location.
The event, which raised $17,300 last year (and $12,000 in the first year) for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, is the brainchild of Henderson residents and proud parents Anthony and Nikki Aukofer.
“Our daughter Kennedy was born happy and healthy three years ago and thankfully remains healthy,” said Anthony Aukofer, Kennedy’s father and bartender at Remedy’s. “For the third year, in honor of Kennedy’s birthday, we are proud to hold this event to raise money for St. Jude to help children fighting cancer. We hope to raise more than $20,000 this year.”
The management of Remedy’s invites the public to celebrate Kennedy’s third birthday and make a donation to St. Jude. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a silent auction with items including: 2 round trip tickets to London; a guitar autographed by rocker Sammy Hagar; golf, hotel and restaurant certificates and a mini-video poker machine, among many others.
Remedy’s will also host a dunk tank during the event, providing guests an opportunity to dunk their favorite Remedy’s employees. The tavern will also award a $1,000 bonus to the guest who hits the first Royal Flush during the event.
For a limited time, a complimentary buffet of sandwiches, pastas and salads will be available to those who donate to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. One hundred percent of donations will go directly to St. Jude.
