Nonprofit Carly Cares holds guest bartender night at The Village Idiot
MAUMEE, Ohio —
A Maumee hot spot is helping a local cause that benefits children with rare genetic diseases.
Folks went to The Village Idiot Thursday night to support Carly Cares, named after seven-year-old Carly who was diagnosed with Hutchinson-Guildford Progeria in 2010.
Guests enjoyed Village Idiot staples like pizza, drink specials and live music as well as guest bartenders from Carly Cares partners such as ProMedica and Meyers Auto Wash.
"It's a really great combination—I mean, it's a hardship honestly to partake in something like this for a cause," said Executive Director Heather Unsinger. "It's just really kind of a group of friends that care about each other and supporting a cause that we all care about together."
Progeria affects 1 in 8 million births. For updates and future fundraising opportunities, visit TeamCarlyQ.com.
