Boobs ‘n Beer: It sounds like something out of a National Lampoon college comedy, right?

Well, this event will leave some people crying, but more likely from gratitude instead of laughter.

The inaugural Boobs ‘n Beer Fest—an event hosted by 7B Women, a committee of the Greater Sandpoint Chamber of Commerce—aims to help families in need by raising money for Community Cancer Services and Celebrate Life. These two essential local organizations provide families affected by cancer with the money and resources they need to keep hope alive.

“We not only wanted to give back, but do it in a fun way, and it’s proving to be great,” 7B Women Committee member Jenn Markwardt said. “We’ve had an amazing turnout for registration so far [140-plus] and an incredible group of sponsors … We’re really looking forward to a fantastic first annual event. Hopefully we can do this for many years to come and raise a lot of money.”

As you might expect, there will be no shortage of beer on hand for thirsty attendees, but plenty of other attractions are planned, too. A 5K fun run will begin at 11 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 2, from Sandpoint City Beach and follows the Sand Creek Trail.
