Growlers for a Good Cause: Selling Pink Growlers to Benefit National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. ®

We like to be part of our community here at PGC; both locally and nationally. Every year we receive requests for donations to help non-profit organizations raise funds for countless incredible causes.

We've had the pleasure of donating growlers to some of those wonderful organizations locally and nationally, but we wanted to do something to make a bigger impact in 2016.

The big question was, how can a small company make a bigger difference? 

After lots of research, brainstorming, and conversations amongst our team we realized that all of us were somehow connected to someone who has been affected by breast cancer, and I bet everyone who reads this probably has a friend or loved one fighting the same battle. Taking a look at the statistics for 2015 was a bit sobering:


We connected with National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) last summer to learn more about what they do and begin a conversation about how we might help.

Help PGC Raise Funds for the NBCF

Portland Growler Company is so excited to introduce our limited edition Pink Loop Growler and Growlette! Now through June 2016 we will donate 20% of the sales from these pink growlers directly to National Breast Cancer Foundation. That's five months for us to try to raise some serious cash. Want to help us out? Buy a pink growler for yourself or someone you love, and then tell a friend. The more pink growlers we sell, the more money we raise. We're shooting for a donation of $5,000 (or more), by the end of the campaign. That's roughly 350 pink growlers total, or 70 pink growlers a month to meet our goal. Can we do it? You can help by sharing this post via blog, Facebook, Twitter, or whatever social media platform you use, or simply telling a friend. We'll keep you updated on our progress over the course of the campaign, so come back for progress updates, or join our newsletter to learn more.

Thank You for helping us make a difference!
