The Melissa Erickson Foundation is hosting another benefit to help offset costs in the former Washington basketball stars’ fight against Lou Gehrig’s Disease. This time you can partake in drinking unique purple beer at the Ram at University Village (only) from Wednesday until Sunday.
A dollar from every purple beer sold goes directly to Erickson’s foundation.
Erickson, a dominating post for UW from 1997-2001, was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) in 2006. You can read more about her struggle here and about what she’s up to lately, like holiday shopping, here. And if you don’t/can’t drink, you can make donations here.
