When: Saturday (June 5)
Where: Senior Citizens Hall, Redding
The Boobie Goddess Society will host its second annual barbecue, upscale raffle and silent auction on June 5 at the Senior Citizens Hall in Redding to raise funds in support of the battle against breast cancer. Dinner tickets are $15.
A no-host beer and wine bar opens at 5:30 p.m., a barbecue tri-tip and chicken dinner will be served at 6:30 and a raffle will be held at 8. Raffle items include a 3-day houseboat vacation on Shasta Lake, a weeklong Lake Almanor vacation and a trip to Sunriver, Ore.

Proceeds from the barbecue and walk will support the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade to fund educational programs, accelerate research into new treatments and potential cures and provide access to care for those that most need it.
