Wilmington brewery event supporting MS Society

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Beginning at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Wilmington Brewing Company hosted Tuesday with Sally, an event supporting multiple sclerosis (MS) research and prevention.

MS is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body.

For every pint sold, $1 will be donated to the MS Society, specifically the Shupe Troop for Walk MS.

The Shupe Troop is a family branch of the MS Society. Laura Shupe was diagnosed with MS at age 24. She is a UNC Wilmington alumni, and played soccer for the school.

“She was a really healthy, active person,” said Sally Lindroos, Laura’s sister and a beertender at the brewery. “Our main focus for Shupe Troop is to not focus on the downside of the disease but to focus on how we can positively raise money and have some fun in the community to raise money for this.”

From 4-7 p.m. Tuesday, artist Mike Blair will perform live music, and Bill’s Front Porch Food Truck will be serving.
