Share a Brew and Fight Cancer Too, a fundraiser to benefit the Children’s Cancer Research Center, raised several hundred dollars, says Councilman Ian Lovejoy, one of the event’s organizers. Held at Badwolf Brewery on Kao Circle on June 3, the event drew a crowd despite torrential rain. “I have to give credit to Badwolf Brewery, who was gracious in letting us use their space on a Friday night for this cause. They also donated a percentage of sales to the charity as well,” said Councilman Lovejoy. Donation jars, scattered throughout the space, were full, and over $500 raised in just a few hours. “The atmosphere was laid back, fun and definitely for a good cause,” stated event attendee Karen Mercer.

“I’m incredibly proud of our business community for stepping up and working with engaged citizens with events like this,” concluded Councilman Lovejoy. “You don’t have to look hard in Manassas to see we’re a true community.”

This event is one in a series of fundraisers to help raise money for the Children’s Cancer Research Center on behalf of Osbourn High School Student Joseph Davis and the Charity Skateboard Tournament he will be hosting on Saturday, June 18 at the Dean Skate Park. Joseph is a remarkable young man and avid skateboarder, and  has independently worked with community leaders to hold the city’s first charity skateboard event. The event, lasting from 10:00 a. m. -1:00 p. m. at the newly relocated Dean Skate Park and will feature prizes, raffles, food and more. All money raised will be donated to the Children’s Cancer Research Center. The series of fundraisers will conclude after the Skateboard event with Bar Louie donating a portion of June 18th sales to the cause.
