As of today Widmer Brothers Brewing is about halfway to it goal to raise $10,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters by Aug. 11, officially Brother’s Day in Oregon.
The Widmers will donate $1 for each humorous e-card sent from the brewery’s website.
The company also will donate $1 for each person who becomes a fan of the brewery on Facebook.
“Our effort to support Big Brothers Big Sisters is a personal commitment,” Kurt Widmer said. “We know firsthand the value of strong role models and of course, the importance of brotherhood.”
“I just hope Kurt remembers to buy me a Brotherâ€™s Day present this year,” added his brother Rob.
Brotherâ€™s Day was made official last year when Aug. 11 was proclaimed a holiday in the State of Oregon and the City of Portland.
