WARREN, NJ - Friends of Stefanie and Steve Healey, parents of Brooke Healey, the 5-year-old who passed away Sept. 9 after an eight-month battle with an inoperable brain tumor, will be hosting Brooketoberfest, Oct. 26 at The Somerset Hills Hotel, from 7:30 to 11:30 p.m.

The event is a celebration of Brooke Healey and to promote awareness of pediatric brain tumors and the lack of funding. Tickets are $100 per person and will include appetizers, dinner, four-hour open bar and live music by The Rental, Kosmic Day Dream and The Dirty. Tickets can be bought at Elefante Music, Paolos Kitchen and Marion Deli or by emailing Brooketoberfest@gmail.com. All proceeds will go to Pediatric Brain Cancer Research. There are only 200 tickets to be sold.

In honor of Brooke, and to promote research to cure pediatric brain tumors, The Brooke Healey Foundation will likely hold three fundraisers a year. A golf outing, Bikers for Brooke motorcycle run and Brooketoberfest. Brooketoberfest will be the last major fundraiser of 2013. 
 
"Brooke is still the miracle, throughout her journey, she has created bonds with people from all over the world. love, support, compassion.. all the things that most people felt were missing in today's society, she brought forth in everyone she touched. Her legacy is and will always be that of love. That's a pretty amazing accomplishment for a 5-year-old little girl,"  said Donato Curcio, cousin of Stefanie.
