The Academica Club will be holding a fundraiser at the Venus de Milo, at 75 GAR Highway (Route 6) in Swansea, on Thursday, June 30.

The Academica Restaurant, on 627 South Main Street in Fall River, was flooded this past Valentine's Day when a cast-iron pipe in a second-floor bathroom cracked open during the freezing cold temperatures. The water ran for hours, saturating walls, and adding a layer of water to the basement, which was approximately three inches deep.

According to The Herald News, tickets for the fundraiser are $50 a person and are available by calling the Academica Restaurant number at 508-677-4663.

Junior Paquette, vice president of the Associação Académica stated that "all of the proceeds will be going toward the renovation."
