Restaurant to hold fundraisers for Kasey Kupcik: Pizza Villa & Restaurant will host a fundraiser at both of its locations to benefit 19-year-old Kasey Kupcik, who a year ago was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

At its 7038 Coastal Blvd. location, the restaurant will donate 20 percent of its sales from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday. At its 13122 Spring Hill Drive site, the restaurant will donate 20 percent of its sales from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday.

Kupcik, a 2013 graduate of Central High School, completed her final chemotherapy treatment on July 29 and has been again admitted to Florida State University. She was diagnosed one week before leaving for FSU in 2013.

Though now considered cancer free, Kupcik's medical bills exceeded her insurance coverage. A fund has been established to help her. Donations may be sent to 14054 Amero Lane, Spring Hill, FL 34609. Make checks payable to Kasey Kupcik and write "Treatment" in the memo line. An account has also been set up at Bank of America for donations to Kupcik.

For information, call (352) 683-5629.

Movie in the park: The Brooksville Parks and Recreation Department will show The Lego Movie at 8 p.m. Aug. 15 at Tom Varn Park, 306 Darby Lane, Brooksville. The free outdoor event is sponsored by Friends of the Children, Bright House Networks and Advanced Pier Technology. Call (352) 540-3835.
