Breast Cancer Awareness Month

(The following is a facsimile of the posters that we've plastered all over the pub and restaurant.)

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

We at Dusters Restaurant and Gottberg Brew Pub want to help breast cancer researchers find a cure for this killer of women by making a donation to the Gateway for Cancer Research. This organization is underwritten by the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, which my mother, Judy Beckstrom, credited with sustaining her during her 15-year battle against the disease. Judy died on October 9, 2002, less than a week before her 58th birthday; the donation will be made in her memory.

The Nine-Percent Solution

The total amount of the donation is up to you: I pledge to donate my entire October bonus, which is 9% of the sales of our craft-brewed beers and sodas. The more of our products you enjoy, the bigger our contribution will be.

Drink our beer. Drink our pop. Find a cure.

Richard Stueven, Brewer

I'm watching the Senators-Devils game this afternoon, and the Rogers Sportsnet announcers just pointed out that this is the 10th year for Hockey Fights Cancer. Keep an eye on that site for the annual On-Line Charity Auction; I picked up an autographed Evgeni Nabokov stick last year.

i'd say send me a couple gallons of pop, and a growler or four of the good stuff . . .but it would prob'ly cost more in postage than for the actual product(s).
can i just send you a check and you hand deliver me some?

i've lost two (human) friends in the last year due to cancer--spine and lung. they were 46 and 48.

i'm feelin old . . .
