Flying Dog Fundraiser for employee with cancer

Flying Dog Brewery PR and Even Coordinator Stephanie Kerchner sent me an email about an upcoming fund raiser. Please read below:

"I don't know if you have heard, but our longest standing employee and brewery manager, Mike Freeman, was recently diagnosed with a very serious brain tumor and the most aggressive of its kind! Due to Mike not being able to work and to offset some medical expenses, Mike’s friends and family are hosting a fundraiser. The fundraiser, Rock the Mike: The Freeman Brainefit, is on Saturday, August 23rd at the old Flying Dog warehouse (24th and Blake) from 7-2am. We are going to have several bands, free beer from Breckenridge, Great Divide and Flying Dog, free food and a raffle with a $20 cost at the door. All of the proceeds from this event are going to Mike and his fiancĂ©e Jennifer.

I have attached the press release and our flyer. I was hoping you could help me spread the word in your blog, paper, to your friends, etc. The more people we get in the door, the more money Mike gets!

Please check out the website we set up for him at You can also support Mike by purchasing a "Fuck Cancer" shirt! Please let me know if you have any questions! "

The event is too far away for us Nashvillians to attend, but if you click here, you can purchase one of those "bold" Tshirts or make a donation via Paypal. Pray for Mike and hope he goes into remission and possibly back to work.
