Pints for Prostates Campaign Heading to Portland, Oregon
Pints for Prostates will be in Portland, Ore., from July 23-26 to help raise awareness among men about the need for regular prostate health screenings and PSA testing.
The Oregon Brewers Festival, which takes place Thursday-Saturday from Noon to 9 p.m. and Sunday from Noon to 7 p.m. at Tom McCall Park in Portland has graciously donated booth space to the campaign. We’ll be staffing the booth with local prostate cancer survivors who have volunteered their time and we will raffle off a kegerator during the event.
On Friday, July 24, from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. the Rogue Distillery & Public House at 1339 NW Flanders in Portland is hosting a fundraiser for the campaign. Pints for Prostates founder Rick Lyke will be on hand at 5 p.m. for a special toast.
All funds generated by Pints for Prostates benefit the Us TOO International Prostate Cancer Education and Support Network, a 501(c)3 charity with more than 300 local support chapters that help men with prostate cancer and their families.
