Full Moon Margarita Madness to benefit KidsPeace again 

PORTLAND – Margaritas Mexican restaurant is throwing a big party on Friday, and KidsPeace will benefit from the fun.

Every month, on the night of the full moon, the restaurant holds Full Moon Margarita Madness. There are specials, contests and fun prizes from area businesses.

The party goes from 5 p.m. to midnight at the restaurant at 11 Brown St., and 5 percent of lounge and bar sales will be donated to the KidsPeace South Portland office for their work with children in crisis. So gather up your friends and head over to celebrate the end of the work week for a great cause.

This is the third and final Full Moon Madness event to benefit KidsPeace this summer. All funds raised will go to helping kids and families in crisis in York and Cumberland counties.

KidsPeace is proud to celebrate 130 years of giving hope, help and healing to children, families and communities. Anyone interested in becoming a foster parent should call 410-964-9329, 207-771-5700 or go to
