BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOUNRE, FLORIDA – Mike and Stephanie Haridopolos like to think outside the box when it comes to working for the betterment of the community.
When the couple decided to host a party at their new place to benefit Hope for a Single Mom, they opted for a party to end all parties for this grassroots organization that helps single mothers fighting breast cancer by providing financial support to help them keep a roof over their heads and food on the table.
In true Haridopolos style, Saturday’s event will not be a tepid affair with somebody’s friend’s band headlining.
Instead, Fran Cosmo, former lead singer of the band Boston, will bring other of the original band members to sing in the Haridopolos backyard.
Brevard Sheriff Wayne Ivey will emcee the event, and his daughter, Janna, will be the opening act.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from the event will go directly to local single mothers battling breast cancer while raising their children.
Haridopolos knows personally how tough it can be to be a single mom. She is also a victim of domestic violence who carefully plotted her family’s escape strategy.
Abused by her first husband for seven years, Haridopolos left the relationship as soon as she graduated residency and snagged a job.
“Once I had a paycheck, I got out,” she said. “I had to do it for me and for my family.”
