The cause is very close to our hearts, and we will be collecting funds right here online with donations at the checkout. You can also visit us in the bar and bottle shop at 124 Weston Street, Brunswick East, and add a donation to your bill, or sponsor us directly through the Dry July website - HERE
Dry July is more than just a sobriety challenge. In 2008, the first Dry July in Australia raised over $250k, surpassing the original goal to fundraise and buy a $3,000 TV for the waiting room of a local hospital. This was the beginning of the journey for Dry July Foundation, the charity behind the Dry July campaign.
Whilst the action you are challenged to take in July is to give up alcohol, Dry July's purpose is to help provide a better life for people affected by cancer. The Foundation funds items, services and programs that provide comfort, care, support and information for people affected by cancer.
Some of the beneficiaries are Cancer Council Australia, Leukaemia Foundation, McGrath Foundation, Ovarian Cancer Australia, Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and Redkite, who provide services in local communities around the country.
Now that's something not to drink to this July!
