This month the bars of DrinkAbout are teaming up for our annual Pints for Prostates event. This time we're doing it on Father's Day to toast Dads.
According to the American Cancer Society....
Other than skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men. The latest American Cancer Society estimates for prostate cancer in the United States are for 2012:
- About 241,740 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed
- About 28,170 men will die of prostate cancer
About 1 man in 6 will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime.
Prostate cancer occurs mainly in older men. Nearly two thirds are diagnosed in men aged 65 or older, and it is rare before age 40. The average age at the time of diagnosis is about 67.
Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men, behind only lung cancer. About 1 man in 36 will die of prostate cancer.
The event will start at 1pm and go for about 4 hours. During that time each bar will donate $1 per beer sold. Please be sure to tell them you're there for Pints for Prostates and ask if there are any specials or restrictions.
We'll also have are monthly event on Wednesday the 20th. Yep, that makes two chances to get on the bus. We will always be running the bus on the 3rd Wednesday of every month unless we announce otherwise. BUS, BUS, GET ON THE BUS.
