November 4, 2012 just after midnight, families worlds changed forever. Skylar Kooken, just 16 years old, and two of her friends, Sophie and Julianna, passed away in a car accident. Skylar’s mom, Kelli, and her family and friends have decided to take this tragedy, and make a positive influence on the community with a scholarship fund in her honor.
Tonight, Saturday April 9th, at Soft Rock Cafe at 877 Miamisburg-Centerville Rd, a benefit will be held for this fund.
The benefit will include raffle prizes, silent auction items, drink specials and more. Food Adventures suggests ordering some of Soft Rock’s famous pizza? The wings are good and of course the band is terrific.
One of the features of the night is local favorite band “The Fabulous Debonte Brothers.” They will be playing rock and 80’s tunes throughout the night. There is a $5 cover charge that will go directly to the Skylar Kooken Memorial Fund.
The Skylar Kooken Memorial Fund is awarded to graduating seniors from Bellbrook High School.
