Fun Events This Weekend and Beyond for Pints for Prostates

Pints for Prostates is using the universal language of beer to reach men in Houston and Tampa this weekend.

Yonke Motorsports is partnering with the Pints for Prostates campaign to promote men’s health during the 23rd Annual O’Reilly Auto Parts Spring Nationals at Houston Raceway Park from April 9-11.

For the second time this season the NHRA Pro Stock entry driven by Bob Yonke will carry the Pints for Prostates logo. Yonke is currently sixth in the NHRA Pro Stock standings after four races. Fans will get to see the Yonke Motorsports Pints for Prostates Pontiac GXP entry when Pro Stock qualifying gets underway on Friday afternoon.

In Tampa, Mr. Dunderbak's Biergarten, Marktplatz & Restaurant at 14929 Bruce B. Downs Blvd. will be hosting a day long event on Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 a.m. to help raise awareness about prostate cancer and encourage men to get regular prostate health screenings and PSA tests. Mr. Dunderbak's will be making a donation to the Pints for Prostates campaign from a portion of the day's proceeds. Beers from Bell's Brewing and Cigar City Brewing will be featured.
