Pokemon Go-ing for a good cause, Brew Bus to raise money for cancer patient


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — You can gain some experience points, and help raise money all at the same time Friday.

The Port City Brew Bus is hosting a Pokemon Go Bottle Shop and Brewery Pub Crawl. Owner Jeremy Tomlinson said they’re going to drive around and make stops at Wilmington bottle shops and breweries to not only search for Pokemon, but also to raise money for a Wilmington woman who is fighting cancer for a second time.

He said 100 percent of the proceeds will go to Elizabeth Moreland Teel who he called a friend of the brewery community.

“Ultimately, having a good time is paramount, but being able to do it and help someone out in need I think adds a little bit more to it,” Tomlinson said. “It always makes it that much easier to go spend a little bit of money.”

Tomlinson said the crawl starts at 6:15 p.m. Friday at Bombers Beverage Company in downtown Wilmington. He added that you can buy tickets online.
