We will be back in 2018 | Narrows brewing co. & taproom | Tacoma, WA

Another amazing beer and bites is "in the books"! each year it is awesome for us to see the growth of this event... we set another record in 2017, raising a net profit of more than $500,000 for south sound care!

Hosted by the Founding Underwriting Sponsor, The Rush Companies, you’re invited to Beer and Bites 2018,  a sensational night of generosity, gourmet tastings, handcrafted beers, and an exciting Live Auction and Paddle Raise followed by live music and dancing with Sounds Like Delores. 100% of ticket sales, sponsorship and proceeds benefit South Sound CARE Foundation, providing cancer research and treatment to patients in the South Sound region. Beer & Bites was first hosted in 2015. Since then, we've raised more than $1.3 million for cutting edge cancer research. We hope you'll join us in October 2018 for more excitement.

South Sound CARE Foundation

South Sound CARE (Cancer Awareness Research Expansion) Foundation is a regional organization that helps fund cutting-edge cancer research trials that are underfunded. South Sound CARE provides access to innovative clinical trials that might otherwise be unavailable such as: Expanded Access Trials, Investigator-Initiated Trials, and NCI Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) trials to patients in the South Sound.

In 2008 a group of community leaders shared a common vision to create a foundation that would support and expand clinical trials and cancer research in the South Sound Region, ultimately providing its residents with cancer treatment options otherwise unavailable.

Hence the birth of South Sound CARE Foundation.

Comprised of local leaders in the cancer care community, South Sound CARE's board includes cancer survivors and medical professionals from MultiCare, Franciscan and Northwest Medical Specialties all striving to eradicate this deadly disease.

Why We Support South Sound CARE Foundation

Each and every one of us knows someone - a parent, a child, a friend, a colleague - who has suffered from cancer. Thankfully, more and more people are surviving cancer today. Many are right here in Puget Sound, and it's because of the research, treatment and care of Dr. Frank Senecal and the South Sound CARE Foundation.

Because of their extraordinary determination to end this horrible disease, we pledge to make a difference for them. I ask you to do the same.

Attend Beer & Bites. Register today. The Rush Companies is hosting the event, so 100% of proceeds raised (tickets, sponsorship, auction, fund-a-need) goes straight to South Sound Care.

We're not formal people - leave your heels and bow ties at home. Come and drink Narrows Brewing Co. beer, dance to Sounds Like Dolores, donate to a great cause, and celebrate South Sound CARE with us.

See you at Beer & Bites,

Gordon Rush
