Cheers to the Wherehouse 'Cans for Cancer' Fundraising Event
This weekend - September 14, 15 and 16th - join The Wherehouse during their 'Cans for Cancer' fundraiser to raise money for the fight against breast cancer. The popular dining/sipping/live music venue will be host to a 3-day-long fundraiser dedicated to a great cause. According the BreastCancer.org about 1 in 8 U.S. women (just under 12%) are at significant risk of developing invasive breast cancer. Risk factors include gender (being a woman) and age (growing older). Not much is known about the origins of disease other than a 10% - 15% hereditary link - but, statistically 85% of breast cancer cases occur in women who have no family history of breast cancer.
Wherehouse Staff Joey, Tommy, Jovanna, Erika and Heather want to see You this weekend!
The Wherehouse will donate proceeds from this weekend to breast cancer research. $1.00 from every can of Longtrail Ale and .50¢ from all other can drink purchases will be donated. A "show us your bra" raffle will be held - entries will literally be bras in lieu of tickets to be picked for prizes.
