Two Pints for Prostates Events Taking Place in Charlotte, N.C.

Pints for Prostates will be holding two events in Charlotte, N.C., during the next two weeks. All of the money raised by these events goes directly to Us TOO International, a 501(c)3 charity that works to support, educate and advocate for men with prostate cancer and their families.

If you live around the Charlotte area or find yourself traveling through on business or a vacation, please check out one of these events.

Sept. 9: The Flying Saucer Draught Emporium (University Area at 9605 N. Tryon St.) will host a fundraiser for Pints for Prostates on Sept. 9th from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m. They are holding a raffle for a bunch of great prizes, including a kegerator donated by Carolina Beer, a hammock from Labatt’s Blue, a golf bag from Widmer Bros. Brewery and a pub signs from Dogfish Head Brewery and Highland Brewery. Raffle tickets are available at Flying Saucer for $5 each or 5 for $20.

Sept. 18: Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery (Uptown at 401 N. Tryon St.) will hold its Oktoberfest beer tapping party and help raise funds for Pints for Prostates on Sept. 18th from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. If you cannot make it to Munich this year, here’s your chance to catch some of the flavor. For a $5 donation you will receive a raffle ticket for prizes that include two $50 gift cards to dine at Rock Bottom.

Both of the events are being supported by members of the Charlotte Beer Club, so here is your chance to meet some fellow beer fans. There are other Pints for Prostates events in the works for elsewhere in North carolina, plus Colorado, Pennsylvania and British Columbia. More on those later.
