Thousands show support with 'Mugs for Jugs'

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Thousands of patrons stopped by Front Street Brewery Saturday for a fun-filled day at the 5th annual Mugs for Jugs event. 

Mugs for Jugs is a breast cancer awareness fundraiser established by The New Hanover Regional Medical Center Foundation's Pink Ribbon Foundation.

As one of the biggest celebrations of the year, those in attendance had the chance to enter raffles and a silent auction, get dunked a dunk tank, have their picture taken in a photobooth, and even play in a beer pong tournament. Prizes for each contest were donated by local organizations.

All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Pink Ribbon Project in order to provide care baskets to women recently diagnosed with breast cancer as well as free mammograms for women who qualify for the program who otherwise could not afford them.
