My friend John Ritchey II is raising some money for a great local cause. To help him along the way some of us, including John himself, donated some beers to help raise funds.

There are multiple boxes available to win. After the first box, each box will be unlocked at a certain $ increment

For every $10 donation you get one chance to win.

Here is a message from John


I am fundraising for the Meadville Medical Center Foundation to raise money for a new linear accelerator at the Yolanda G. Barco Oncology Institute. The small team I am joining will be climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro this fall, in hopes that our fundraising and physical efforts will raise enough money and to bring awareness to such a needed piece of equipment to help save lives.

We have all been affected in some way by cancer and being in the small town that we are, there is not one person that doesn't know an individual that has been to the YGBOI. The linear accelerator currently in operation has neared its useful life and is in much need of a replacement. With its first year in operation, there were 4,000 treatments delivered. The center has now grown to provide more than 25,000 treatments to patients annually from 97 zip codes.

Helping individuals who are suffering from cancer in some way, I pledge to raise $10,000 to help with the replacement cost of this new machine. If any of you would like to help me meet my goal, It will be much appreciated. Using the link provided, you may donate there, even at a $1.00, it will get us there!

Thank you all!”

**will split shipping costs with international winners**

Boxes being added. Will update accordingly on here.
