Pints for Prostates Plans Seven West Coast Events Thanks to Rogue Ales

Rogue Ales is giving a real boost to the Pints for Prostates campaign along the west coast by hosting seven events in Oregon, Washington and California during June and July.

Rogue will enlist its network of pubs to help Pints for Prostates use the universal language of beer to reach men with an important health message. During the events information on prostate cancer and the need for regular health screenings and PSA testing will be available. Rogue will also raise funds for the campaign, which go directly to the Us TOO International Prostate Cancer Education and Support Network.

Five of the events are being held on the Saturday of Father's Day weekend -- the perfect time to have a pint with Dad and nag him about making an appointment to see his doctor -- while two others are taking place during July.

If you cannot make it to one of these events, you can always back Pints for Prostates by making a donation on the campaign's website.

Nice to have events that will excite people and at the same time raise awareness of something serious.
