Connecticut Beer Tour For Charity

bridge 245

Todd Ruggere is on a mission to raise as much money as he can for cancer research and he’s doing it one beer at a time. This idea was hatched in Massachusetts and so for most of 2013 he marched all over the Commonwealth and had a beer in 351 towns. That included the islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket too.

When it was all said and done he tasted about 1,000 beers and raised $40,000.00 for the Children’s Cancer Research Center in Boston.  Ruggere told me after all that beer he only gained 2 pounds from when he started out.

This went so well he decided to do this again and selected Connecticut even though Vermont was vying for his attention.

On his tour in Connecticut, he’ll kick things  things off in Stratford in early January, 2014. He wants to raise even more money then he did in Massachusetts and it will go to the Children’s Hospital at Yale-New Haven Hospital in New Haven.

He’s an out-of-the-box thinker and is hoping this will lead to a job in marketing or beyond.

You can follow what is going on on his Connecticut Facebook Page and on his website which is www.CtPourTour.com

He’s looking for sponsor on his Nutmeg tour, if you get involved just know this Father of  a new baby has a real soft spot for children, and he’s helping in his own way.
