We’re about to hit you with a hard fact that might scare you, but it’s for your own good. Over 70% of ovarian cancers are diagnosed when the cancer has already spread beyond the ovary and throughout the abdomen. Because of a sheer lack of awareness and early detection, over 14,000 women will lose their lives to ovarian cancer this year, according to the American Cancer Society.

This is how you can help! In observance of Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, Evo Italian in Tequesta will be hosting a special “Girls Night Out” to benefit H.O.W., a non-profit organization that supports ovarian cancer research, educational programs, and provides funding for women with ovarian cancer in financial need.

On August 25th, 2018, Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse will be hosting a moonrise tour to view the full moon from the top of the lighthouse.

On this day, the moon will be in “Waxing Gibbous” phase, meaning it is more than 50% illuminated but not yet a full moon, with the complete full moon actually happening at 7:56 am the next morning.  However, the moon will be high in the eastern sky around sunset, and will be 99% illuminated, providing for an all-around picturesque view.

According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, the August full moon is called the Sturgeon Moon because sturgeon (a type of northern fish) are more easily caught in August during this moon. Hopefully, in true South Florida style, the stars will align and lucky fisherman will be calling this
