WASHINGTON, D.C. – ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer and Hop Valley Brewing are joining forces this November to raise awareness about prostate cancer. Hop Valley Brewing is the premier sponsor of ZERO’s Grow & Give campaign – a nationwide effort that raises critical awareness and funds for the urgent need to end prostate cancer.
“ZERO is grateful to have Hop Valley as our premier Grow & Give sponsor this November,” said ZERO’s CEO and president, Jamie Bearse. “With Hop Valley’s support, more patients and their families will get the help they need and we’ll get a step closer to zeroing out prostate cancer.”
Throughout November, “Grow & Givers” grow facial hair or don sticky mustaches in an effort to raise funds for ZERO’s support programs. As the premier sponsor, Hop Valley Brewing is donating a portion of proceeds from the sales of Bubble Stash IPA during the month of November. Hop Valley Brewing will match up to $25,000 in donations the first and last weeks of November to ZERO’s Grow & Give campaign as well as hosting a virtual happy hour celebration to wrap up this year’s partnership and announce the photo contest winners.
“Hop Valley Brewing has partnered with ZERO’s Grow & Give program for a few years now and we are excited to take this program to the next level with a giveback from Bubble Stash sales nationwide to support Grow & Give,” said Megan McKenna, Director of Marketing, Hop Valley Brewing Co. “We are so proud to partner with ZERO and use our platform to provide education and help raise awareness.”
ZERO is the leading national nonprofit in the fight against prostate cancer, a disease that takes the life of a man every 15 minutes. Since 2014, Grow & Give has taken the country by storm and attracted teams and individuals from many industries and regions. All Grow & Give participants are committed to the cause of ending prostate cancer and improving men’s health.
Hop Valley Brewing and ZERO’s Grow & Give partnership runs the entire month of November. A kickoff celebration from Hop Valley’s Eugene, OR brewery will be streamed on ZERO’s Facebook page on Wednesday, November 3rd at 8:00pm ET. To learn more, visit zerocancer.org/grow.
