On Saturday, April 14th, Will Ferrell came to our beautiful land of Saint Diago (San Diego for you non-Anchorman obsessed friends) to raise money for a very noble cause, and our adventurous founders got to participate. Will even signed some of our awesome Wheatpaste Posters that Stick to auction at the event. Cancer for College is a non-profit corporation run by Will’s close friend and college buddy Craig Pollard. Craig, himself, is a cancer survivor- and he’s made it his mission to help raise college funds for cancer survivors and amputees. College can definitely take a backseat in expenses when costs fighting cancer mount up.
Will and Craig have teamed up, yet again, to find a way to help raise money for this noble cause. The latest event involved two double decker buses, and what San Diego has on tap- craft beer! Tom and Karen, GreenBox’s founders, got to join the fun and have a few laughs. Even San Diego’s mayor, Jerry Sanders, stopped by in support of the cause.
So far, Cancer for College has provided over $1.5 million in scholarships to nearly 900 cancer survivors through many events similar to this. So, raise your glass for a toast to Craig Pollard and Will Ferrell- changing people’s lives.
