GRAND FORKS, N.D. - This Thursday, March 22, UND's Love Your Melon campus crew is hosting a Beers, Beanies, and Bingo at Half Brother's Brewery to raise money for cancer survivors in our community.  

 

The money raised at the event will benefit the local chapter of the Cope Well Foundation and will be used to create care packages for local cancer survivors,  filled with items to help make cancer treatments a little more comfortable, which the group will later assemble and take to the hospital.  

There will be all kinds of prizes for winners including gift cards to local restaurants and bars and love your melon gear.

“To help put a smile on these cancer survivors faces and these cancer patients who are going to be receiving these survivor sacks because you don't realize how big of an impact you're making with even with just the smallest donation,” said Nicole Huttunen, of UND’s Love Your Melon Campus Crew.

 

The event runs from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday, March 22.
