It is time for the Pint Project to collaborate with another brewery to assist a fire family in need. The Mejia Family will be the beneficiary of a collaboration event with Bagby Beer. The Bagby team has a history of giving back and they are the perfect fit for this event. Marin Mejia was diagnosed with stage 3B anal cancer recently during her pregnancy with her second girl. After routine tests began to come back abnormal, further tests showed the baby was healthy but Marin was discovered to have advanced cancer. Baby Mejia will be delivered early via C-section so Marin can begin her treatment. The Mejia family is a fire family; Marin's husband, Mike, is a firefighter with National City fire.
We are very happy that we were able to land such a special venue for Marin's project. We have known Jeff Bagby for many years and truly think he is both the best brewer around and also a great person. The Bagby family has opened their doors to the fire family and told us that they are willing to do anything in their power to make this event the most successful one yet!
As always 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the family to assist with medical bills and the endless financial burden that always accompanies cancer. The event will include a performance by the San Diego Emerald Society Pipes and Drums, music by Michael Tiernan, a silent auction and raffle, and release of a special IPA brewed especially for the family, "Marin's IPA". There are a limited number of VIP tickets available that include an hour long beer and food pairing with Jeff Bagby.
Those unable to attend the event are still able to donate to the family online at the link below and on our home page.
