Drink beer, fight cancer. We've been doing it for five years now and Boo Brew 5 promises to be the biggest and best Boo Brew yet!
Join us on Thursday, May 17, 2018, at the Infusion Brewing Company Tap Room located at 6217 South 118th Street. We are partnering with Infusion Brewing Company for the second straight year for our summer fundraiser where you can choose between four locally brewed craft beers from Infusion Brewing Company. Best of all -- you will be drinking right where the beer was made!
It costs just $10 to get in and that includes your first drink and a souvenir cup. Refills are only five bucks and all the proceeds go to Scare Away Cancer. You can sit inside at the tap room bar or join us outside at our covered beer garden. Music, games, prizes, even a food truck will be on hand just in case you get hungry.
Scare Away Cancer started in 2011 and our mission is quite simple. We give money to patients and families who are fighting cancer to help make ends meet. Also, we support programs which provide charitable care to patients and help improve the lives of people battling cancer.
We have raised close to $700,000 in seven years; we are an all-volunteer organization which means the money you donate goes directly to patients.
You can donate to Scare Away Cancer on our website and make sure to join us for the biggest and best Halloween party on October 27th at Anthony's Steakhouse.

Scare Away Cancer, a nonprofit organization run by volunteers from MCL Construction and others in the Omaha, Nebraska, community, donate $15,000 to the Inner Beauty Program at the Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center. 100% of the money will be used for charitable care for patients who otherwise could not afford products and services.
"Our relationship with Scare Away Cancer goes back several years," said Lori Fuchs who directs the Inner Beauty program. "Scare Away Cancer raised money to help with the construction of our new space and now the generosity extends directly to those who need it most."
A year ago, Scare Away Cancer made a similar donation to Inner Beauty and the impact was tremendous; 86 patients received assistance from the grant. Services provided included skin care, scalp care, wigs, hats/scarves, prosthesis, mastectomy garments and more. Patients do not have to be receiving treatment at Methodist Health System to utilize the Inner Beauty Salon services.
"We want to help as many people fighting cancer as we can," said Tony Fucinaro of Scare Away Cancer and Senior Vice President at MCL Construction. "Lori and her team are real caregivers and have a significant impact on so many lives."
The Inner Beauty Salon is located inside the Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center. It is a warm, intimate, beautifully appointed setting where cancer survivors can experience personalized salon services and image consultations.

Scare Away Cancer's Boo Brew 4 at Infusion Brewing Company was the biggest one yet! This is regarding attendance and money raised. 247 people attended the July 13th event which raised $5,200 for Scare Away Cancer. 100% of the money raised goes directly to cancer patients, families, and programs.
"I am amazed at how this event has grown," said Paula Ebert from Scare Away Cancer. "People believe in our mission and want to help any way they can."
This year's event was the first at Infusion Brewing and Tap Room. Four locally brewed craft beers by Infusion Brewing provided everyone with plenty of hops.
"Infusion Brewing hit it out of the park," added Scare Away Cancer's Tony Fucinaro. "The outside beer garden tent was a huge success and the weather was very cooperative."
Boo Brew is an event designed to be laid back and raise awareness of Scare Away Cancer, its mission, and where the money raised goes to throughout the year.

An idea that started over three years ago is now a reality. The Infusion Therapy Center at the Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center is now fully remodeled. MCL Construction completed the work in December and patients have noticed.
"We are really excited about the final outcome," said Patty Bauer, Service Executive of Oncology Services at Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center. "We really wanted a place that was warm and inviting for our patients."
Gone are the pink walls, the laminate countertop at the nurse's station, and the old carpet. The Infusion Therapy Center is painted with brighter colors, the nurse's station has a solid surface top, and the floor is medical grade vinyl that gives the appearance of a hardwood floor.
"When I started, I really didn't know the difference, it's just how it was," said Amy Hartigan, a registered nurse at the Infusion Therapy Center. "The new colors and the remodel brings a whole new attitude to the Infusion Center, to the patients, and the staff."
The project was made possible by the generous contributors to Scare Away Cancer. The annual event organized by the employees of MCL Construction raised money for the remodel for two years and contributed $80,000 to the Methodist Hospital Foundation to make construction possible.
"Scare Away Cancer is an awesome event," said Bauer. "It's amazing to be around people who have so much compassion for people they have never met before. It's evident that the people who participate and donate are very genuine."
Scare Away Cancer is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Since 2010, the Halloween-themed event has raised over $500,000 for cancer patients and programs in eastern Nebraska and western Iowa. Scare Away Cancer is a 100% volunteer organization by the employees of MCL Construction. The 2017 event will be held at Anthony's Steakhouse on October 28.
The latest technology in treating cancer is now being utilized at Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital in Council Bluffs, Iowa. The addition of a state-of-the-art linear accelerator gives cancer patients in southwest Iowa the best in cancer care.
"Patients have responded extremely well, they are very positive, and have talked about how calming it is to come into the new room with the new equipment," said Steve Baumert, President and CEO of Methodist Health Jennie Edmundson Hospital.
To make room for the new linear accelerator, MCL Construction carefully coordinated with hospital staff to assure there were no disruptions to hospital services during the project. It took ten months to complete a 3,400 square foot addition that was constructed between the existing hospital and the parking garage on campus. The new addition created a vault for the linear accelerator with the walls being up to five feet thick of concrete. A new control room, exam room, and storage room are also part of the project.
Director of Cancer Services at Jennie Edmundson Hospital, Michelle Kaufman, worked closely with the MCL Construction team throughout the project.
"The guys from MCL were an absolute joy to work with; the communication from day one all the way through to the project was excellent. I think patient care was their number one concern," said Kaufman.
The Cancer Center at Methodist Health Jennie Edmundson is the ONLY nationally accredited cancer center in southwest Iowa and patients may drive an hour or more each way for treatment.
The new linear accelerator will allow the staff at Jennie Edmundson to treat more complex cancers previously referred to other facilities for radiation therapy.
Scare Away Cancer is proud to support this project, the dollars you donate have a huge impact on patients and families that are fighting cancer.
