    Hello you beautiful beer drinkers,

    We are doing the Parkinson's Awareness Walk Beer Lottery again for the 3rd year in a row. This will be the final year that we are running this lottery. We have some great beers to raffle off this year.

    With the help of all of you and the rest of the beer community, our team raised $1800 on this beer lottery alone. We couldn't have done it without our friends at Cycle Brewing and Garagiste Meadery donating bottles and the owner of Willard's Tap House in Largo allowing us to have a Parkinson's Night with special kegs and raffles. We raised a total of $8,000. We want to try to outdo that number this year. I know it is only 5 weeks, but i think we can do it!

    A brief background on this for those who don't know or don't remember.

    "My best friend of well over 20 years, Danny Payne, found out his father had Parkinson's Disease a few years ago. His dad has pretty much been my dad since I grew up without one. He has always been there for me and has treated me like a son.

    He has been doing everything he can to keep himself moving, which is the motto for Parkinson's. He has been participating in boxing (Rock Steady Boxing), walks over 2 miles every day and anything else he can to not sit still. He could not believe what we did last year in the beer community raising money to help find a cure and fight Parkinson's."

    Alright....on to the goods and rules...

    Rules:
    For every $10 you donate to me, Chuck Snow, on the Parkinson's Walk website, your name will go in the drawing. So if you donate $20, you get 2 shots, and so on. We are gonna give a little bonus for you this year. If you donate $50, you will get 7 shots and $100 will give you 15.

    Drawing will be done weekend of the walk and posted on YouTube for results.

    Here is the link to donate: http://www.popspeeps.com/chuck
    Please make sure to put your BA user name as your "Display Name" on the donation page so that I know who to contact. I will get an email from the site with your Billing name attached, so I will be able to see both.

    Prizes: (Bottle Porn will be posted later)
    We have 4 guaranteed boxes and, like last year, the winners will be able to pick the box they wish. So first place will get their choice of the 4, 2nd place will get the choice of the remaining 3 and so on.

    Box 1:
    Angry Chair Tiramsu Stout
    Cigar City Life is Like Batch 2
    Cigar City Bourbon Raspberry Halo
    Cigar City Double Barrel Zhukov
    Cigar City Whiskey Imperial Milk Porter
    Cigar City Bourbon Hunahpu

    Box 2:
    Cycle 444 Set (BA Hazelnut, Rare Dos 1, DB Sunday and Rare NOA)
    Cycle Double Barrel Vanilla
    Cycle Pecan Pie

    Box 3:
    Cycle Great Hits Set (Joyous Almond, Coconut, &+, Brinner and DBR)
    Cycle Double Barrel Vanilla

    Box 4:
    Cycle Collab Set (Friendly Heads Up, Bonded in Sin, Fire Dog, Home State and Big Adventure)
    Cycle Double Barrel Vanilla DBR

    Last and final note:
    We may be adding boxes as we did last year with special release stuff that our friends at Garagiste or Cycle may provide. These boxes will be given for Milestones (ie, highest donator, hitting certain donation amounts). We'll post these milestones as they come about so they aren't a surprise to anyone. Thank you for your time and hope you will help us out!

    We greatly appreciate the donations we have received thus far! We are making slow progress but I know it will pick up.

    Pics will hopefully be up tonight now that Tampa beer week is over and I can concentrate on this more.

    Cheers guys! Really appreciate all the support!

    This is from my friend, he posted on the other site but doesn’t have an acct over here...

    “Thank you to all the donations so far! We were planning on having the Cycle Weekday set, but alas, they had some problems with the product and were unable to have the release.

    Pops is doing well, but you can definitely see the Parkinson's taking a firmer grip on his life. To name a few: the tremors are more noticeable, he's lost his sense of smell, and he struggles to find words more often. But his spirits are stronger than ever. My brother and I have taken more responsibility at the office (part of why we're so late posting the LIF), which allows Pops to get out and enjoy life more with his wife. I'm not sure what we would do without her.

    Pops has been fighting the disease ever since his diagnosis. He walks the dog 2 miles every morning and participates in Rock Steady Boxing 3 days a week. He is more involved with Parkinson's Foundation and trying to get programs/education brought to the St. Petersburg, FL area. Many of his friends have to drive 30-40 minutes to get to Boxing class in Largo and that is not always feasible for someone with Parkinson's. My dad often shuttles them when he can.

    The money you donate goes directly to our local community. The Tampa Bay area has seen a dramatic increase in support of Parkinson's from the generous donations of people like you. So from the bottom of my heart, I thank you. Cheers to another great year!”
