Tuesdays in October- Wolf Creek Brewery Community Pints

Every Tuesday the Wolf Creek Brewery presents Community Pints!

That means every Tuesday in October Wolf Creek is hosting a party for the BMCF!

Each Tuesday is a different food truck and band at the brewery and 10% of all sales are donated to the BMCF! On top of that throughout the entire month, for every Golden Eagle Ale they sale in the Wolf Creek restaurant, the BMCF gets 50 cents!

That's a lot of money for young adults during their fight!

Stay tuned here and on the BMCF Facebook page for more info and mark your calendars for every Tuesday in October!

Thank You Sponsors!

Brenda Mehling Cancer Fund

The Brenda Mehling Cancer Fund (BMCF) supports patients ages 18-40 as they undergo cancer treatment. It provides services to meet daily needs that are not covered by insurance. Typical grants measure under $500 and include co-payments, rent and mortgage, transportation, car insurance, repairs, and groceries. The goal of Brenda’s Fund is to help young adults in treatment maintain self-respect and minimize the stress of associated financial challenges.

Brenda was diagnosed with breast cancer in her late twenties, when she realized that the health care system was not equipped to meet many patients' day-to-day needs through months of treatment. Brenda and BMCF past president, Kieran Wong, founded the BMCF in February 2001.

Since the inception in 2001, it has helped 525 young adults, providing $329,631 in support services. Brenda built the Fund for young adults to maintain self-respect during months of treatment and minimize the stress of associated financial challenges. Even though she is no longer with us, we continue to work to fulfill her vision of a nationwide organization that helps young adults fight - and beat - the disease.
