Portland, Ore. February 14, 2019 – The Brian Grant Foundation (BGF) is kicking off its annual Pints for Parkinson’s fundraiser with parties in Portland and Bend to celebrate the 35 businesses that participate in the program. Throughout the month of April people can purchase $25 “Pints Passports” that are good for ten pints at any of the participating locations.

The event in Bend is open to the public, with $1 of every pint purchased that evening benefitting BGF.

“The incredible number of establishments participating in Pints for Parkinson’s shows the commitment of our business community to helping people with Parkinson’s live fulfilling lives,” says Katrina Kahl, executive director of BGF. “ Brian was known for his tenacity on the court and that determination is matched by the thousands of Oregonians that come out year after year to support him in his new journey as a Parkinson’s advocate.”

“Pints Passports” can be purchased at any of the participating locations or online throughout the month of April. Passports can be used starting on April 1, 2019 and ending on on May 31, 2019.
