Our NBTS fundraising goal for 2018 is $20K and we are nearly at 75% of this goal. We owe a lot of gratitude to Dave Marliave from Flat Tail Brewing who has raised over $10K through his 2018 Highway To Health where he rode his motorcycle from Corvallis to San Diego raising funds for NBTS.
This week we have a handful of NBTS fundraising events in and around the Portland area. Team BREWPUBLIC fundraising will be at Ecliptic Brewing on Tuesday; Old Town Brewing – MLK and Zoiglhaus Brewing on Wednesday; Bailey’s Taproom with Gigantic Brewing and Bridgetown Beerhouse on Thursday; and Migration Brewing – Gresham on Saturday. A large amount of gratitude goes out to these breweries and tap rooms that have been very generous over the years.
These events lead up to the annual NBTS Portland Walk that takes place on Sunday, August 5, 2018 beginning at 9:00am at the Rose Quarter. Yes, it’s a new location as we move from Pioneer Courthouse Square where the walk has taken place in the past. If you’d like to join us on the walk we would be very honored to have you be part of our team showing support for this disease that affects over 700,000 Americans. Please join Team BREWPUBLIC and walk with us by clicking HERE. A $30 donation means so much to those that battle this disease on a daily basis.
