Beer and Bites 2019 was record breaking!


Bringing Innovative Cancer Research To The South Sound

TBD 2020 | Narrows marina | Tacoma, WA

Beer & Bites is a sensational night of generosity, gourmet tastings, and an exciting Live Auction and Paddle Raise with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the South Sound CARE Foundation. 


Increasing Our Chances in the Fight Against Cancer.

Historically a cancer diagnosis in the South Sound meant an immediate referral to Seattle or cancer centers far beyond. Since 2008, South Sound CARE Foundation has been changing that in the Puget Sound region. Important trials are conducted locally, patients are living longer and they are living better lives. Treatment is available while living at home surrounded by friends and family -- eliminating the need for patients to travel.

Since 2015 we have raised nearly $2.5 million to move the needle on cancer clinical research here in the south sound. Thank you for joining us in our quest for a cure... learn more about the massive impact South Sound CARE is making here.

The South Sound CARE Story

The 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 Pharmaceutical Industry 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 South Sound CARE Foundation began.

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