WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Front Street Brewery raised money for breast cancer awareness Saturday by hosting its annual Mugs for Jugs fundraiser, where the restaurant sold mugs of beer and offered visitors fun activities.
Front Street's Marketing Manager Ellie Craig said everyone has been affected by cancer in some way or another, and that's why they've had this event year after year.
"One of the reasons we do it this time of year is because we don't want it to get lost in the shuffle in October," Craig said. "People need to be aware of breast cancer year round, so we give them the opportunity to do that here at this event."
Leigh Mayhew is a nurse and came out Saturday afternoon to support the cause.
"Every day at work, I take care of a lot of people with cancer, so it's really important to me to raise awareness," Mayhew said.
This is the fourth year Front Street has held the event.
