Business donates portion of sales to Bark for Life

BANGOR - Geaghan's Pub & Craft Brewery in downtown Bangor is well known for its wings, beer and community spirit. For the fourth year in a row, the business is donating a portion of its proceeds from a certain day's sales to Greater Bangor Bark for Life, an American Cancer Society Relay for Life event that honors the caregiving qualities of canine companions.

"We have always appreciated their mission and efforts for helping to support people in our community who are battling cancer. It's a topic that hits home for many of us at the pub," explained Andrew Geaghan, owner.

Former Geaghan's employee Dawna Hensley, who passed away from cancer in 2013, was a big supporter of Bark for Life. When her co-workers wanted to raise funds to help pay for her recovery, she urged them to think bigger and give to an organization that could help everyone, not just her. So, that's exactly what Geaghan's has been doing ever since. On Thursday, April 30, 10 percent of the proceeds from all orders from 7 a.m. - 11:30 p.m. will be donated to Greater Bangor Bark for Life.

"We are always looking for ways to give back to the community that has supported us for so many years," said Geaghan. "It is really a win-win for both of us."

The public can participate in the fundraising efforts by simply stopping in on April 30 for a bite to eat or ordering a meal to go.

"All the money raised goes to the American Cancer Society for human cancer research, but a lot of people think it's for canine cancer," said Lisa Sturgeon, Bark for Life 2014 co-chair. "We want to fight all cancer, and so that's our goal."

Greater Bangor Bark for Life committee members will also be on hand at Geaghan's on April 30, passing out information including team registration paperwork for this year's event scheduled for June 13 from 5 8 p.m. at the Hollywood Casino Raceway in Bangor. There will also be Bark for Life items for sale for those who are interested. For more information, log on to www.relayforlife.org/barkforlife.

    Greetings, I am trying to get together a list of the local establishments in Bolnuevo, so that we can create a local help file for people visiting Marina de Bolnuevo. If you have any ideas, please submit them to the Marina de Bolnuevo Blog on the website. If you can, please include their email address. Thanks in advance Tony.

    Hi there, just wanted to share with you that we had a great time at Marina de Bolnuevo in August of this year (http://www.marinadebolnuevo.co.uk/about-bolnuevo). We flew into Alicante and hired a car from the airport for the short drive to Bolnuevo. The beaches are perfect, most of them awarded the Blue Flag. The restaurents were great, with paella on the beach a highlight and managed a trip to the nudist beach there. Very liberating. We also visited the Big Guns, The Roman Mines and the Sand sculptures. Will be returning there again next year. Look forward to catching up with you at Marina de Bolnuevo in the next few months. Thanks for reading Nikki.

    I'm not sure why but this site is loading very slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end?
    I'll check back later and see if the problem still exists.
