Through “Pints for Prostates,” Arooga’s Grill House & Sports Bar is hosting a month-long fundraiser to benefit The PA Prostate Cancer Coalition, whose mission is to extend and improve the quality of life for men through prostate cancer awareness, education, and the advocacy of responsible screening. Arooga’s is expanding its reach this year to its franchise locations in Patchogue, NY, North Plainfield, NJ, Uncasville, CT and Warwick, RI, who will also participate in the campaign to raise prostate cancer awareness in their states.
In partnership with Lagunitas Brewing Company, Arooga’s will donate $1 from every Lagunitas IPA sold at all locations for the entire month of November.
“We thought it would be ideal to raise awareness for this serious men’s issue by syncing a fundraiser with things that men enjoy the most at Arooga’s: drinking great beer while watching sports,” said Gary Huether, Jr., co-founder and president of Arooga’s. “We have fun with it every year and enjoy the opportunity to raise funds while raising awareness. We’re always very excited to work with Lagunitas in support of such a great cause.”
"We are so grateful to Arooga's and Lagunitas Brewing Company turning this promotion into an annual event, said Kristine Warner, Executive Director, PA Prostate Cancer Coalition. “The PA Prostate Cancer Coalition seeks out men in their natural habitats to spread prostate cancer awareness, and Arooga's certainly fits that bill! This is our second annual month-long NovemBeer celebration to educate men about important prostate cancer facts, such as family history being a significant risk factor."
"We are proud that our popular IPA can contribute to the support of such a worthy cause. Pints for Prostates is a great program and we hope our support of Arooga's event can benefit as many people as possible." Karen Hamilton, Director of Communications from the Lagunitas Brewing Company.
