Pints for Prostates Reaches Men at Beer Festivals in North Carolina and Texas
This past Saturday thousands of beer fans in North Carolina and Texas attended two great festivals and also got the chance to learn more about prostate cancer.
Pints for Prostates received donated booth space from All About Beer magazine at the World Beer Festival in Durham, N.C., and from the Flying Saucer Draught Emporium at the Fall Beer Festival in Austin, Texas. Local Us TOO International volunteers staffed the tables and answered questions.
The events were a huge success. A number of men with family histories of the disease stopped at the booths to ask questions and pick up literature. Additionally, more than $3,000 was raised through raffles and donations to help Us TOO in its mission to support, educate and advocate for men with prostate cancer and their families.
