This year, Downey Brewing Company, has decided to dedicate our first ever “Give Back Tap” for October, to coincide with Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We believe that even one person can make a difference, and that everyone should try. A portion of the proceeds earned during the entire month of October from our “Give Back Tap” will go towards the fight against breast cancer. In addition, this is our first fundraising event for Breast Cancer and we are partnering with #KellmannStrong to bring you HELP FOR A CURE on Thursday, October 24th! A portion of proceeds earned from the event will also be donated to the #KellmannStrong 2020 Detroit Race for the Cure team.
75% of fundraising earned will stay within Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties to help women who would not otherwise have access to screening and treatment; 25% will go towards grants through Susan G Komen. This is super important, as our tri-county area has higher rates of both late stage diagnosis and death than any other area in Michigan, and the nation. The research dollars around genetics and biology have led to personalized, less-invasive breast cancer treatments as opposed to the “one-treatment-fits-all” approach, and has proven to be much more effective. We really can make a difference and we’d love you to join us!
Here’s our plan to join in on the fight against breast cancer:
1) $1.00 from each brew sold on our dedicated “Give Back Tap”, will be donated towards Breast Cancer for the ENTIRE month of October!
2) Our Fundraising event, HELP FOR A CURE, will take place on Thursday, October 24th from 5 PM – 8 PM. Entry is $10.00 and includes food and four raffle tickets.
3) Additional raffle tickets will be available for purchase at the event. We are partnering with local businesses, and organizations, to set-up a fundraising raffle. All raffle ticket proceeds will be donated to the cause!
4) Last but not least, a portion of the proceeds earned during our Help For A Cure event will be donated as well!
When: Thursday, October 24th 5 PM – 8 PM
Where: Downey Brewing Company 13121 Prospect Street, Dearborn, MI.
***Light snacks / Hors d'oeuvres will be provided***
