Send a card, support Big Bros & Sisters

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 Brother’s Day present this year,” added his brother Rob.

Brother’s Day was made official last year when Aug. 11 was proclaimed a holiday in the State of Oregon and the City of Portland.
