BREWS for Breast Cancer Hi there! Please join me in supporting my friend Shaina Torgerson in her fight against breast cancer by drinking delicious beer, buying a "breast cancer" donation beer, or making a donation.

On Monday, Oct. 11th, Shaina was diagnosed with Stage 1, Grade 3, Triple Negative Invasive Ductal Carcinoma in the left breast. She had discovered a small lump in her left breast weeks prior and immediately brought it to her primary care physician. All of the doctors who felt the lump, performed the ultrasound, biopsy, and mammogram had said that it seemed “normal” and was likely just a fibroadenoma. Everybody, including her PCP who had to deliver the news, could not believe that a strong, healthy, young woman who prides herself on her health and fitness was receiving this news at just 29 years old.

This news came just a day after her boyfriend of 8 years, Kyle Rawson, proposed to her at their favorite alpine lake, Sawtooth, with their new puppy and dog in tow. In just less than 24 hours, their reality went from dreams of a wedding and raising a family to facing chemo, breast surgery, and fertility preservation. While she has said that she feels grateful to have this happen at a time in her life that she has stability with her job, great benefits, and a strong support system, there is always the reality that cancer is expensive. Being the savvy couple that they are, they want to make sure they're financially prepared for the unexpected expenses that pop up with cancer.

Shaina and I have had many memories created over several ruby valley brews, we both share a passion for craft beers and good people, which the Ruby Valley Brew community and Shaina have in common.

Please come join us for a fun night!

Any funds not used toward Shaina's fight against breast cancer will be donated to the Young Survival Coalition and Barbells for Boobs. She is a proud RAD Athlete with Barbells for Boobs and wants to be sure to give back in any way that she can once her fight is over.

Sunday, November 7

The Dillon Hoop Shoot will be happening at BCHS on Sunday, November 7, at 2 p.m. Gerald Penn is organizing this year's Hoop Shoot.

"For nearly 50 years, the Hoop Shoot has been developing gritty kids. The Elks Hoop Shoot is a free throw program for youth ages 8-13. The Elks National Hoop Shoot program is fully funded by the Elks National Foundation Inc. The 501(c)(3) public charity the Elks National Foundation helps Elks build stronger communities through programs that support youth, serve veterans, and meet needs in areas where Elks live and work."

"You don't have to be the fastest, biggest, or strongest athlete on the court to sink one free throw after another. Practice and precision are the name of the game. When you step up to the free throw line, it is a level playing field."

"The Elks National Foundation and the entire Hoop Shoot team nationwide are committed to making contests fully inclusive, equitable, and safe for all our participants and volunteers. We welcome and encourage all eligible kids to give the Hoop Shoot a shot. We are all equal at the free throw line. Racism and intolerance have no place in the Hoop Shoot, on or off the court."

How can you help? You can help by spreading the word to kids and their parents, by getting kids together to practice their free throws, by helping that kid who doesn't have access to a basketball and/or a hoop, or by coaching and encouraging those kids who don't feel confident.

For more information, check out, or call the Dillon Elks Lodge 683-5552, or call Gerald Penn directly 925-9184.

Let's show the community that the Elks Hoop Shoot is back and make this the best one ever.

Have a safe and fun weekend Southwestern Montana.
