The Greater Gainesville Young Professionals will host Purple Pint Night for Epilepsy Awareness Month on Wednesday at First Magnitude Brewing.
The event runs from 5:30-7:30 p.m. with a $10 ticket that earns you a commemorative pint glass, a raffle ticket and a wristband that gives you $1 off each beer bought. All profits will fund research for an Epilepsy cure.
Attendees can also purchase additional raffle tickets.
According to a press release, Epilepsy impacts more people than Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy, Autism disorders and Parkin’s disease combined. But Epilepsy receives less than a tenth of the funding.
