An estimated crowd of 200 people gathered to raise a pint (or two) to help in the fight against cancer. $3,700 was raised for Scare Away Cancer, a nonprofit organization that supports patients and families who have immediate needs. The organization also supports cancer programs that provide treatment and services to cancer patients. This year, Scare Away Cancer is helping the Linear Accelerator project at Methodist Health Jennie Edmundson Hospital in Council Bluffs, Iowa.
"It's inspiring to everyone come and support our cause," said MCL Construction Senior Vice President Tony Fucinaro. "I think this event is a success because it's low key and very relaxed. Everyone here considers each other friends."
Scare Away Cancer is an all-volunteer organization started by the employees of MCL Construction. This year, Boo Brew 3 was supported by a team of volunteers from the Lincoln Financial Group. Its team was instrumental in driving presale tickets to the event, checking in guests, selling raffle tickets, and organizing basket raffle prizes.
Scare Away Cancer's feature event is coming up on October 22 at Anthony's Steakhouse. If you haven't been to our Halloween costume bash, you are missing out! Purchase individual tickets or an entire table by clicking here.
If you were not able to come to Boo Brew and find yourself inspired by those who did, please feel free to make a donation to help us continue our mission of helping, helping in any way we can.
Looking for a great way to help fight cancer? Raise a pint, or two, or three!
Save the date for Scare Away Cancer's Boo Brew 3 at the Nebraska Brewing Company Tap Room (6950 S 108 St), July 21 from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM. If you haven't tried the great beers from Nebraska Brewing Company, you are in for a treat. If you have, you know exactly how delightful a brewski can and should taste.
Not much has changed from our first two Boo Brew events. Tickets are available at the door; $10 will get you a souvenir glass and your first beer. Refills are just $5!
This event keeps getting bigger so plan on having fun! The employees at Lincoln Financial Group are already getting in the spirit volunteering their time to help promote the event and pre-sell glasses and tickets. This dedicated group will be at Nebraska Brewing Company on the night of the event helping out and making sure you have a great time.
Scare Away Cancer is now in its sixth year, and we have raised almost $500,000 for cancer patients and programs in eastern Nebraska and western Iowa. Our support has expanded from a one-time yearly donation to the ability to help out year-round and fight a disease that affects each and every one of us.
Here's a challenge: (I hope you have read this far) share this post with two friends on your social media channels and invite them to come. Let's fill up the Tap Room and make Boo Brew 3 the biggest and best yet. If, by chance (and it better be a slim chance), you can make the event, please consider a donation to Scare Away Cancer. We are a 100% all-volunteer organization; your money is helping families and making a difference in the quality of care patients get.
