Alaskan Brewing Company gives $5,909 donation to Cancer Connection as part of Charity of the Year
On Friday, Dec. 7, Alaskan Brewing Company named Cancer Connection as its Charity of the Year for 2007. The employees donated their gift shop tip money to the local grassroots non-profit organization.

Tish Griffin Satre, Cancer Connection president, received the check of $5,909 and gratefully thanked the employees for giving hope to their friends and neighbors diagnosed with cancer.

"Cancer Connection is thrilled to receive this generous donation from the employees at the Alaskan Brewery. Their generosity will help many cancer patients receive travel assistance, counseling, support groups or a buddy in their time of need. What a generous holiday contribution," Satre said.
