Thank you for supporting #BeerBeatsCancer!

Last week on Thursday, October 14, we had an incredible evening at Hops & Thyme in Lakeway, TX. After taking a break during the pandemic of 2021, we were excited to resume our third annual fundraising event to support Light the Night Austin and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS).

Over $10k raised to support LLS

Together with 80+ guests, we set out to verify a very important scientific hypothesis: that beer can beat cancer.

After some careful collection of data, the answer was a resounding YES! Between ticket sales, raffle, and silent auctions, the event racked up over $10,000 for a great cause (double our pre-pandemic total from 2019!)

Ticket Sales and Donations: $3k

Raffle and Silent Auctions: $7k+

GRAND TOTAL: $10k+

Thanks to the efforts of our generous volunteers and sponsors, we’re proud to say that all of our costs for the evening were covered. Every single dollar we raised together went straight to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). This money funds valuable cancer research and supports families affected by blood cancer right here in Austin.

A huge thank you to everyone involved!

We’re so grateful for local businesses and organizations who pitched in to donate some incredible auction items and beer for the event. These sponsors included Hops & Thyme, Twisted X Brewing, Wild Bunch Brewery, Dripping Springs Distillery, Wakanine, Tito’s Vodka, Fitzhugh Brewing, Face to Face Spa, Mantis Massage, Baldwin Beauty Schools, and Iron Wolf Distillery.

Several other individuals generously contributed jewelry, gift cards, and even a getaway to a beach house in Port Aransas.

Join the fight against blood cancer

#BeerBeatsCancer is just one part of our company’s commitment to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and we’re already gearing up for the annual Light the Night walk happening on November 6, 2021.

In addition to funds raised at #BeerBeatsCancer, CCN is donating 50 cents for every hour billed — already totaling over $17k to-date!

You can support the cause by donating to LLS or joining our team to walk at Light the Night 2021.

Have a small business or community group? Whether it’s to raise funds or simply participate in the walk, Light the Night is a great cause to rally around. Feel free to reach out to learn more about LLS and the many ways you can contribute.
