According to our StormTeam 8 Forecast, temperatures will be soaring back to around 90 degrees this weekend. Here’s a way to beat the heat this weekend… and, a way to possibly take advantage of it!
The C.H.A.I.N. Fund‘s signature “Breakfast and a Movie” event is this Saturday, June 30th beginning at 8:00am! The C.H.A.I.N. Fund raises money for cancer patients who have been physically and financially devastated by their disease. Everything from prescription co-pays to rent and mortgage payments falls under the C.H.A.I.N. umbrella. The Fund also provides educational and emotional support for patients, so they are well-armed to fight cancer from the beginning. Breakfast and a Movie is a great way to help the Fund grow, while growing your own social circle at the same time!

Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo continues its 90 Days of Summer celebration through Labor Day weekend, in order to celebrate the 90th anniversary of Connecticut’s only Zoo! With all of their promotions, the theme is all about the 90s…
This Thursday, you might actually want the temperature to rise; Beardsley Zoo is offering free admission for one child per adult when the high temperature is above 90 degrees on a Thursday. Keep an eye on the forecast… just last Thursday, our temperature topped out above 90 degrees, so it’s bound to happen again! The Zoo is in Bridgeport; you can get directions at this link.
