The 2019 Breastfest Beer Festival is on Saturday, July 18 from 1pm to 5pm. This year, the event will be in the North Bay at the Marin Center in San Rafael.
This annual fundraiser helps raise money for low-income women diagnosed with breast cancer. It supports the Charlotte Maxwell Complimentary Clinic with locations in both San Francisco and Oakland.
This year's festival features dozens of breweries. You can also enjoy food samples from several local restaurants, live music, a raffle, and a great time!
This year's Breastfest Beer Festival features several local breweries from the Bay Area, as well as from around the US and beyond.

The Breastfest Beer Festival also does an amazing job with their raffles each year. You must be present to win.
Tickets are already on sale. You can buy them in advance for $50 (for a a limited time), then it's $65 per person for general admission.
The Breastfest Beer Festival is unique as it is run by volunteers. This means that all proceeds from the event go directly to the Charlotte Maxwell Complimentary Clinic.
This clinic offers free services to low-income families dealing with breast cancer, including surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. They also offer alternative treatments to help relieve the patient's pain. These include free acupuncture, herbs, massage, therapeutic imagery, and social services.
