Kick off 2017 with a great beer event for an even greater cause.
Pour For A Cure is back for its 7th year and will take place Friday, January 20th at the US Steel Tower in Downtown Pittsburgh. All proceeds from the three-hour gathering will be donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Pour For A Cure has been called “The Happiest and Most Helpful Happy Hour in January” and every dollar earned will benefit millions of patients battling blood cancers.
Admission to this event is limited with only 350 tickets being sold. Your admission includes access to craft beer samples donated by Frank B. Fuhrer Wholesale, as well as food samples donated by various local Pittsburgh restaurants (stay tuned as these will be named soon). There will also be a silent auction filled with several great prize packages for you to bid on.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, or LLS, is the world’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research and providing education and patient services. It was founded in 1949 and its mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, and myeloma, as well as improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Their support has helped hundreds of thousands of blood cancer patients live normal lives.
LLS has invested more than $100 million towards research for a cure, $79 million in 2013 alone. Programs like the Specialized Center of Research (SCOR), which brings teams of scientists together from different disciplines, as well as the Translational Research Program, have directly contributed to many breakthrough cancer treatments.

Pour For A Cure is another fantastic event featuring craft beer that gives back to a worthy cause. Throughout the year, the city of Pittsburgh is fortunate to experience a wide variety of beer and spirits festivals and gatherings, many of which were created to raise money for charities and non-profit organizations. 2017 promises to be no different and Pour For A Cure is one of the first to get the ball rolling in the brand new year.
There are currently Early Bird Tickets on sale until Thanksgiving for Pour For A Cure. If you can’t make it on Friday the 20th, please take a few seconds to donate to the cause directly through the Pour For A Cure website.
