TORONTO, ON – Bar Hop, Black Lab Brewing and The Society of Beer Drinking Ladies have announced details of an event to raise funds and awareness for a unique breast cancer research and education program.
Tap The Cure will take place at Bar Hop Session (681 Danforth Ave.) on Wednesday November 20th from 6:00 PM to 9:30 PM, and will support the PYNK Program, an initiative at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre that is “run by an interdisciplinary team of experienced health care professionals and a dynamic group of young breast cancer survivors to address the special clinical, psychological, research and educational needs of younger women with breast cancer.”
PYNK was chosen as a beneficiary due to the support it has provided for Black Lab co-founder Anne Madden, who was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year at age 27. The brewery released PYNK Hibiscus Pale Ale to raise funds for PYNK during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, and the final kegs of the beer will be tapped at the event on Wednesday.
In addition to proceeds from the bar, Bar Hop will also be donating partial restaurant sales for the evening to PYNK, and the three co-hosts will each be selling merchandise to help the cause. The event will be rounded out with raffles, games, and live music by blues artist Sean Pinchin.
