This is its third annual BRU Fest Michigan fundraiser to bring together aficionados of craft beers and delicious food to benefit Michigan children and adults affected by leukemia, lymphoma and other blood-related cancers.

“An event doesn’t have to be black-tie to make a big impact,” said Bill Seklar, president and CEO of Children’s Leukemia Foundation of Michigan. “We created thisfirst-of-its-kind food and craft beer event three years ago to tap into a younger, broader audience through an affordable experience. Royal Oak has been a perfect home for this event that raises awareness and funds for our patients and families based in Michigan affected by leukemia, lymphoma and other blood-related diseases.”
