All Day Breast Cancer Fundraiser


Sometimes life happens and throws us unexpected obstacles that we must overcome. A friend of Urge Gastropub, Carla, was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, which came as quite a shock. There's no telling what will happen, but we know that we want to be there to support! So, we're hosting an all-day fundraiser on Saturday, November 11. All proceeds will go towards Carla's copayments and aftercare through her recovery.

Come join us for fun, food, and beer. We'll even have a raffle going from 12pm to 4pm so you can win some extra prizes. Stop by, and drink a pint in support!
