in case it wasn't apparently obvious yet, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. joining their fine friends across the ocean, Russian River Brewing is also ready to fight breast cancer for the whole month of October with a slew of fund-raisers and awareness events. if you're anywhere near their area (Santa Rosa, California), be sure to stop by and Hop-Up for Breast Cancer Awareness.
Vinnie and I survived our 16th G.A.B.F., and Breast Cancer Awareness Month is in full swing! Our employees are getting in the spirit by helping decorate and sporting this year’s “All Hopped Up For The Cure” t-shirt and baseball cap! Once again, we are donating 100% of the proceeds from t-shirt and cap sales, 5% of the proceeds of sales of Aud Blonde, and accepting donations on behalf of the “Sutter Breast Care Center”. If that wasn’t enough, we are partnering for a second time with Revolution Moto (RevMoto) and raffling off an adorable Pink Vespa 50cc! Raffle tickets are only $10, 3 for $25. If you live outside of the area and want to participate in the raffle, you may send me a check made out to the “Sutter Breast Care Center” and I will fill out raffle tickets for you. However, if you should be the lucky winner, you will responsible for picking up your scooter and any expenses related to getting it home. Russian River Brewing Co. and RevMoto are not responsible for shipping, handling, delivery, or anything else pertaining to you picking up your prize! We donated it, you pick it up! Raffle tickets available at RRBC and RevMoto, and the raffle will be held at our Halloween Party on October 31st! You need not be present to win, but we will call you on your cell phone no matter how late it is!
“All Hopped Up For The Cure” t-shirts and baseball caps are available on our website for our distant friends and family! The back of this year’s shirt is another cool design by my Mom, who also does many of our logos. Tony at Seacliff Designs did a beautiful job with the shirts and gave us a screaming deal so we can donate even more money to the cause! Shirts and hats are in limited supply, so don’t delay!
You can also drink Aud Blonde at the pub, or just make a donation to the “Sutter Breast Care Center”. There is a wine barrel located by the juke box which I will open on November 1st. The Breast Care Center is coming to the brewery on October 7th to officially kick-off Breast Cancer Awareness Month! There is a FREE show with Phatty that night, too. The fun begins at 8pm!
What else? Oh, don’t forget the ”Scooters For Hooters” ride on October 25th from 2-4pm. The entrance fee is one of our “All Hopped Up For The Cure” t-shirts, and the ride begins at RevMoto by the pub. More info available at RevMoto! For a complete run-down of all the shows/activities this month, check out the music calendar on our website. Each band is helping us raise money and awareness all month long!
Below is a picture of me and Johnna on the actual scooter. It’s super cute! If I don’t win it, I might just buy one! Check out the actual scooter at RevMoto all month long!
Finally, please take some time this month to remember loved ones, friends, or acquaintances you might have that are fighting or perhaps lost their fight with breast cancer, or any cancer. Thank you for helping us give back to our community, raise awareness, and have a little fun this month!
