Hops for Hope at MRB
Hops for Hope
I had a friend ask me once, are we just getting older or does it seem like more and more people we know are being affected by cancer?
I don’t know how I responded in that moment but its something I think about often. For such an awful thing to experience, how unfortunate is it that so many people do?
That awful C word will impact 14 million people around the world this year. In VT alone, Cancer is the second leading cause of death.
In honor of all loved ones who have battled, or are currently battling, MRB is hosting a Hops for Hope fundraiser to benefit the American Cancer Society.
Join us this week to support the American Cancer Society whose mission is to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer!
The American Cancer Society is attacking cancer from every angle by offering help to patients, survivors, and caregivers. They have a live 24/7 helpline, offer a free places to stay at the Burlington, VT Hope Lodge & hotel partners, free rides to treatment and much more.
In Vermont, the American Cancer Society has been able to provide over 230 free rides to and from cancer treatment. Served 739 patients through Patient Navigation and provided almost 5,000 free room nights at the Burlington, VT Hope Lodge (Saving patients over $911K) in addition to so much more!
Mill River Brewing will be donating proceeds from all beer sales and dessert sales from Valentines day, Thursday Feb 14th to Sunday, Feb 17th. There will also be a growler in the alehouse open for donations and $1 red hearts for purchase! We will be displaying the red hearts around the smokehouse with the names of loved ones written on each one. All proceeds will be donated.
By now, you have probably ( & hopefully ) seen our event on Facebook promoting MRBs Winter Carnival!
This is an outdoor event so dress warm and come with empty bellies! There will be outdoor heat, music, s’mores on the fire, sugar on snow, face painting and more! Our goal is to have some fun and make a positive difference while doing it! This event will be the grand finale on our Hops for Hope event.
We hope to see you there!
Each donation makes a difference, and with your help, we can support patients, survivors, and caregivers through every step of their journey.
