A time for Lovey.  Anyone who knew Stephanie “Lovey” Uftring knew how she could light up up a room with her personality. She was outgoing, kind, and loads of fun.  Last fall, Stephanie lost her battle with colon cancer and it was a dark day in South Boston to lose such a bright light.  A fundraiser will be held in Stephanie’s honor on Friday, November 13th at 7pm at the Teacher’s Union Hall.  She loved South Boston and always donated to people in need by showing up at a Southie “time” or purchasing raffle tickets or volunteering to work the events.   She would want us to give back to the community on her behalf so this fundraiser is all about giving back and keeping her memory alive. All proceeds for this event will go to scholarships in Stephanie’s name to benefit members of the South Boston community. Tickets can be purchased The Beauty Bar, L Street Tavern and The Seapoint.
