6th and Final Rail Against Breast Cancer
It’s that time of year again… We’re partnering with Team Breast Man Walking for the sixth and final Rail Against Breast Cancer benefit! Join us at The Rail – Akron on Sunday, May 7th, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. for an amazing event, supporting a great cause while having a great time.
RABC raises funds for Team Breast Man Walking’s participation in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day, a 60-mile walk to end breast cancer. This cause is very near and dear to Akron locals Kathy and Lee Giller and Nancy Schrader, who have teamed up with The Rail for this event the last five years.
Lee Giller has been battling stage IV Breast Cancer, and their daughter faced her own diagnosis at 28. The Giller Family has participated in 19 events and raised close to a half-million dollars over the past 10 years. They chose the unique name “Breast Man Walking” to also raise awareness about the risks that men can face battling this disease.
The 6th annual Rail Against Breast Cancer event is extra special this year because it is in honor of Lee Giller’s 60th Birthday. This year Lee is 60 years young, and we’re getting 60 miles closer to a cure for this disease.
If you’re interested in attending, you may purchase tickets by calling us at 330-864-7245. Tickets are $75 per guest ($55 tax deductible). Attendees will enjoy an evening of live music by Akron’s Swizzle Stick Band, auction and raffle items, as well as The Rail’s all-Ohio burger sliders, locally sourced hand-dipped milkshakes, locally distilled spirits and tasty house-made sides. The Rail – Akron will be closed after lunch-time on May 7th for this private event, and the staff will volunteer their time for the evening.
If you can’t make it to the event, you can make your own contribution while dining at any of The Rail locations, now through May 6th. We’re proud to say that over the past five years, with your help, we’ve helped raise more than $50,000 for team Breast Man Walking and the fight against breast cancer, and we hope our final year can be just as successful! Join in the fight, and help make a difference today.
