Brink For A Cause : Michael Plaskowicki's Recovery

This is a family-friendly event packed with things to do for everyone including live music, great food, auctions for cool gifts, prize giveaways, and of course the award-winning Brink beer!

On March 17, 2018, Michael suffered a tragic car accident in Cincinnati OH. He was diagnosed with a series of life-threatening injuries including significant brain trauma which left him comatose and fighting for his life. Michael was airlifted to UC hospital, and given little chance for survival or recovery. After two months in this critical state, he awoke from his coma. This led to a series of battles in rehabilitation centers. After six months of rehab in the US, his family made the decision to transfer him to a specialized rehab center in his native Poland – and progress has been impressive!

Please help our friend to return to his role as an enthusiastic father and strong, loving husband.

On behalf of his wife Gosia, we seek your support in achieving this goal. The clinic in Poland has provided incredible services and this type of progress was unthinkable just months ago, but the cost is high. The 8 hours of daily treatment and related expenses run about $10,000 per month.

If you can help in any way – financial support, forwarding the event invite to your friends, or joining us for a few beers and a good time at our charity event, it will be much appreciated! A portion of the brewery proceeds will directly benefit the family.

You can track Michael's recovery progress as well as donate via the Facebook page:
