The fourth annual BRU FEST Michigan is slated for June 14, 7 p.m., at the Royal Oak Farmers Market. This craft beer-themed event raises funds for the Children’s Leukemia Foundation of Michigan. Food is provided by Bagger Dave's Burger Tavern and Buffalo Wild Wings, with Michigan's own Bell's Brewery serving up an impressive selection of craft beer.
Plus for the first time ever, BRU Fest 2014 will feature a fundraising “BRU Pong Tournament.” The tournament will allow teams of two to enter a single-elimination match and represent a CLF patient family in their quest for the grand prize, with proceeds benefiting the Children’s Leukemia Foundation’s The WALK fundraiser on July 21st. The individual donation to participate in the BRU Pong Tournament is an additional $5 over a regular BRU Fest ticket.
“An event doesn’t have to be black-tie to make an impact,” said Bill Seklar, president and CEO of Children’s Leukemia Foundation of Michigan. “We created this first-of-its-kind food and craft beer event four years ago to reach a younger, broader audience through an affordable experience. Royal Oak has been a perfect home for this event that raises awareness and funds for our patients and families based in Michigan affected by leukemia, lymphoma and other blood-related diseases."
