Craft breweries, brewpubs and top restaurants throughout Southern California joined together in the month of June to help support the T.J. Martell Foundation’s mission of funding innovative pediatric cancer research. In its second year, the T.J. Martell Foundation’s “Brew for a Cure” program united the foundation’s supporters from the medical, music, entertainment and local beer communities to raise critical funds for its cutting-edge Cancer Research Programs.
Brew for a Cure is an initiative started by the T.J. Martell Foundation to engage the local beer community — restaurants, brewpubs and beer enthusiasts — in our mission of funding cutting-edge Cancer Research Programs, including pediatric cancer research at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. During the month of June, brewpubs and gastropubs across the southland made a donation in honor of Brew for a Cure and hosted a series of activities and gatherings to support the program.
Participating establishments throughout the Southland have chosen to be a part of this important cause by making donations or hosting activities in honor of “Brew for a Cure.” The foundation’s friends at Gordon Biersch of Burbank hosted a Kickoff Party featuring musical performances by Rob Mayes (Actor/Nashville Recording Artist) and Dia Frampton (Actress/ Singer-Songwriter), while friends at Bluebird Brassiere in Sherman Oaks released “T.J.’s Triple” — a brew in honor of T.J. Martell, the foundation’s founders’ son who passed away from leukemia. Other establishments generously planned other activities including a Sunday Funday, Pub Crawl in Sherman Oaks hosted by Bluebird Brassiere, Boneyard Bistro, and The Local Peasant. “Thank you to all the establishments and patrons for your continued support; we could not have done this without you! You are a part of music’s promise for curing cancer,” shared Laura Heatherly, CEO, T.J. Martell Foundation.
