Please come join us at Rogue Ales in North Beach while also raising a beer (or more!) and money for melanoma! A token will get you a beer of your choice, hot appetizers and one raffle ticket. Get tokens and raffle tickets at registration table at the event or online here!

We're going to have some great prizes to give out that you definitely won't want to miss--I hope you all can make it! If you are unable to attend please consider making a donation of any amount. My dear cousin passed away a couple of years ago from melanoma at the age of 33. Because of this I have wanted in some small way to help so no other family loses someone to this terrible disease. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the fight against melanoma. http://www.melanoma.org and http://melanomaintl.org

* The American Cancer Society estimates that the risk of developing invasive melanoma in the United States is 1 in 41 men and 1 in 61 women.
* The incidence of people under 30 developing melanoma is increasing faster than any other demographic group, soaring by 50 percent in young women since 1980.
* Melanoma is the most common form of cancer for young adults 25- to 29-years-old and the second most common cancer in adolescents and young adults 15- to 29-years-old.
* Although melanoma is most common in Caucasians, melanoma can strike men and women of all ages, all races and all skin types.

Rogue Ales has a long history in charitable giving and has been extremely generous to us as well. Celebrating its second century, Rogue Ales is an Artisan Varietal Brewery founded in Oregon in 1988, as one of America’s first 50 microbreweries. Rogue’s ales, porters, stouts and lagers are brewed using hops and barley from Rogue’s own Oregon micro-farms. Rogue is committed to saving the terrior of Oregon hops and barley from extinction, one acre at a time. http://www.rogue.com/index.php

Thanks so much and cheers!
