October is upon us and with it brings cooler weather, nature in its purest form, pumpkin flavored everything, Halloween and preparation for the holiday season. October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month and is dedicated to increase global awareness of breast cancer.
As you know, Malas for Tatas has been personally affected by this disease and is how “two sisters making their way through one of the most difficult challenges they had ever faced together, grew into an unbelievable community of support.”
Back on September 14th Dry Dock Brewing Co. hosted Malas for Tatas for our first Beads and Brews volunteer event. It was AMAZING! We saw some familiar faces and many new ones. We just want to thank everyone that helped us get prepared for our next few months of creating our beautiful mediation tools for future fundraisers. We couldn’t do it without you.
We would also like to give a SPECIAL THANKS to @drydockbrewing for sharing their space with us. The wonderful folks at Dry Dock Brewing Co. wanted to team up again for another opportunity to support Malas for Tatas and of course we said YES!!!
On Tuesday October 8th in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Malas for Tatas, Dry Dock offered to donate all proceeds from the evening of their Snickers Porter to Malas for Tatas! We are so GRATEFUL!
We would also like to give some additional shout outs from our Beads and Brew event…
To the friends we’ve made along the way, the new friends to us that day and a couple of our beautiful recipients Erin LeBel and Anne Conaway that offered their guidance to our volunteers – THANK YOU. Thank you Kristen for creating us our beautiful Malas for Tatas sign, we will display it proudly. We would also like to thank Tyler H with @soundbenders_studio for the support and creativity that he was able to capture around the event. Tyler generously donated his time and creativity to film and edit the video below featuring footage from the Beads and Brews event.
We are so grateful for everyone, thank you for the love, support and continuing to grow our community.
Thank you to all who made it out on October 8th for Kegs for a Cause at Dry Dock Brewing. Erin and I held down a booth with malas and bracelets for fundraising that evening that turned out wonderfully. We made a lot of new friends, all who were very excited to support our cause. A highlight of the night was a special Snickers Bar Porter that Dry Dock released that evening to raise funds for MFT, with each pint sold being donated to the cause. The live music from their open mic night was a lot of fun. It brought local talent to the stage and opened our eyes to the thriving music scene in Aurora, Co. They really livened up the night and during a break, offered Erin a moment to tell everyone about our cause. Overall it was a great night full of fun, friends, great music and exceptional craft brews. If you weren't able to make it out, no worries. You can still be a supporter through the end of the month by dropping a donation in the donation box at the brewery.
Here is a link to a nice image they posted that evening
