Beer Corner USA, 36th and Farnam Streets, will hold a fundraiser Sunday for Joy Marshall, a popular bartender battling Hodgkin's lymphoma.

The bars that make up Beer Corner — Crescent Moon, Max & Joe's, Beertopia and Huber Haus — will be open from 2 p.m. until 7 p.m. and will offer all-you-can-drink beer donated by Odell's, New Belgium, Upstream, Boulevard, Lucky Bucket and other breweries, said Beer Corner operations manager Amy Kroeger.

IF YOU GO:

What: Fundraiser for Joy Marshall

When: Sunday, 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Where: Beer Corner USA, 36th and Farnam streets

Tickets: $20, available at Beertopia or Crescent Moon Alehouse inside Beer Corner, payable by check or cash only. Additionally, Joy's Benefit Fund has been set up at Security National Bank at 35th and Farnam.

The fundraiser will include a silent auction and raffle of more than 100 donated items, including tours of local breweries, gift certificates to local restaurants and salons, home brewing kits, beer and more.

Tickets are available at Crescent Moon and Beertopia for a donation of $20, payable by cash or check only.

Beer Corner employees are hoping to raise $10,000 on Sunday — a day Beer Corner's bars are normally closed. They're limiting ticket sales to 300, and so far more than half have sold.

For more information, call Crescent Moon Alehouse at 345-1708.
