On July 3rd, join us in the Boundary Bay Brewery beer garden for a Breast Cancer Benefit! Jill Reimers and her daughter, Brynn, are raising money to participate in the Susan G. Komen 3 Day – a 60 Mile Walk for the cure. To participate in the walk each walker must raise $2300, so Jill and Brynn have been busy fundraising, gathering gift certificates from local merchants for the auction and planning a great evening at Boundary to raise the rest of the money needed for their walk. SpaceBand and DJ Pizo have donated their time to provide the music and and there is an eclectic mix of unique items that will be auctioned off…including a bike imported from Thailand (On display now in the Boundary Bay Brewery tap room…come check it out.). Best of all, the raffle tickets are only $1! The auction will start at 8 pm and Spaceband should take the stage around 10 pm. The cover is a $5 suggested donation and all proceeds will go to Jill and Brynn to fund their Walk for a Cure.
Here’s what Jill had to say about why she and Brynn are going to such great lengths to participate in this Walk for the Cure:
“My daughter, Brynn Miltenberger, and I will be walking the Susan G. Komen 3 Day – 60 Mile Walk for the Cure in San Diego this fall. There are 12
different cities around the US that your can walk the 3Day. Two years ago we walked in Seattle and had an awesome experience. Not walking last year just didn’t feel right…even though we attended the walk at a cheering point along the route and supported the walkers, it just wasn’t enough.
Twenty-three years ago, 3 weeks before the birth of Brynn, I lost my mom the breast cancer. Walking the 3 Day is something Brynn and I can do together and have a say. I am the age now that my mom passed and Brynn is the age when I learned she had breast cancer. In the past 2 years we have had an aunt and a sister-in-law who have had breast cancer and have become survivors of breast cancer. ~Jill Reimers”
