“The Pints for Prostates campaign hosts events around the country, but many people are unable to attend and still want to help in the fight against prostate cancer,” said Rick Lyke, a Charlotte, N.C., marketing executive and drinks journalist who founded Pints for Prostates after successful prostate cancer surgery in April 2008. “Donate for Dad is a simple and easy way for people to honor their Dads in a way that will make a big difference in the battle against prostate cancer.”
“Whether you say Cheers, Prost, Salud, Slainte, L’chaim or something else when you raise a toast, this year you can honor Dad by helping a great cause,” Lyke said.
