The Highland Country Club in Fort Thomas will host a throwback party Saturday to benefit the Brighton Recovery Center for Women, Saturday February 6, 2016.  Katie Walters of Q102 and Fort Thomas Matters are hosting the party, now in its third year.

Stacey Van Santen, Katie Graham, Rachel Ewald, Lindsey Collier, and Casey Fennell. 
"We completely transformed the Highland Country Club into an '80s disco,” Walters said. “We do it big with an '80s DJ, neon and lights. The Recovery Center girls help set up and the country club has been extremely helpful because they understand the importance of our party and have been wonderful to work with. Add that it's in the middle of the doldrums of the winter and we're hoping for another big night."

Walters said that the Highland Country Club provides lunch for the women before they set up for the party.

The Recovery Center for Women is the most comprehensive program in our area to help combat the heroin scourge in Northern Kentucky. Eighty percent of the 100-plus beds are taken by women ages 18-50 that are reliant on heroin and are trying to get their lives back.

 Corey Wolfe, Tony Manyet and Jeff Dapper.  
“Every person who is trying to get better, their families and legislators all agree that more treatment is needed to end this epidemic. We are trying to get more money to the most successful program we have in the area. Maybe if we get more light on this program, their program will be modeled and emulated throughout the state," said Mark Collier, Publisher of FortThomasMatters.com and Editor for the Fort Thomas Living.

Mark McFadden, who is synonymous with 80s music in Greater Cincinnati, will be the celebrity DJ this year.  He has been a DJ at Q102 for over 26 years and owns his own entertainment company, McFadden Music.

“Mark got his start as one of the city’s top live club DJ’s in the 80s,” said Walters. “He and his long, blond, flowing hair, deejayed at The Conservatory, Glass Menagerie, and Waterfront. Remember dancing under the palm trees at the Waterfront, rocking your big hair? Well, Mark McFadden is going to time warp back to the 80s and allow us relive those memories for one more night.”
