Pints for PKD on Sunday [9.16]

We’re sharing this info about a great event for a great cause:

Pints for PKD, the second annual gathering to support the Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) Foundation, will be held at Buttonwoods Brewery [530 Wellington Ave, Cranston] on Sunday, September 16, from 12-3 pm.

Raise your glasses with us in support of polycystic kidney disease awareness, research, and the search for a cure! Hosted by The Marshall Family with the generous support of Buttonwoods Brewery and the Rhode Island Brewing Society, this year’s event hopes to build on and continue the success of last year, that helped raise over $3,300 in support of the PKD Foundation.

This year features the special release of Positive Impact, a rye saison brewed with brett and wine must, created exclusively for the event by Buttonwoods Brewery and last year’s grand prize raffle winner! This is a non-ticketed event but donations will be welcome and accepted at the door. [Donations are also welcome at any time at the #TeamPKD site.]

Check the event Facebook page for updates re: raffles, swag, and other enticements.

[For those wondering how a homebrew club came about developing a fundraiser in support of Polycystic Kidney Disease….meet Jameson Marshall! Suspected PKD was discovered for Jameson in utero. He just celebrated his first birthday and is doing great — he’s a big and strong little guy who still boasts perfect kidney function — but it is a disease that he will battle with for his entire life. His father Jim has been a regular RIBS member since its early days, and it is obviously a cause that is very close to his family’s hearts. When Jim suggested the Polycystic Kidney Disease Foundation as the beneficiary for this fundraising event and shared his family’s story, RIBS was honored to be able show its support!]
