Drinking a “Razbooby Squeeze” could help change and save lives.
Brockopp Brewing is hosting a Helpful Virtual Happy Hour live at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, October 8 in support of Jamestown Regional Medical Center. The event includes education about cancer and urology care at JRMC. All proceeds benefit the JRMC Cancer Center.
Breast and prostate cancer remain the highest occurring cancers in North Dakota, according to North Dakota’s cancer registry.
In partnership with Brockopp Brewing, the JRMC Foundation will have an educational Zoom to share information about early detection and cancer treatment options. Speakers include:
- Christopher Cost, JRMC Urologist
- Jeff Wiisanen, Oncologist, Sanford Roger Maris Cancer Center & JRMC Cancer Center
- Jason Schaffer, JRMC Radiology (3D Mammography & No Excuses)
“One of our goals as small business owners is to support other small businesses and organizations that help others,” said Nichole Brockopp. Brockopp and her husband, Scott, own Brockopp Brewing. “That is a vision we have had since the talking stages of opening the brewery. We are excited to host this event to raise cancer awareness and share local options for care and treatments our community and surrounding areas.”
Additional Valley City event sponsors include:
- Alley Beans Coffee is featuring a unique “pink drink” for October.
- Wild Prairie Bakery has a “pink donut” for October.
“Eliminating travel for care is important,” said JRMC Foundation Director Lisa Jackson. “Since it opened, the JRMC Cancer Center saved patients more than 244,000 miles. We are here from you. This happy hour allows you to ‘virtually’ meet our providers and ask questions about care.”
All registered attendees will receive a chance to win a fun October-themed door prize.
To help care for patients, Brockopp Brewing is also featuring a “Razbooby Squeeze” sour beer. A portion of sales benefits the JRMC Cancer Center.
“We are grateful to Brockopp Brewing and other local businesses helping JRMC care for its patients,” Jackson said. “We hope people can attend to learn more about services close to home and to support a worthy cause.”
Because we know how important it is to have care close to home, JRMC also has a specialty clinic in Valley City. JRMC Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Timothy Volk and Audiologist, Marissa M. Leese, AuD are now seeing patients.
