    A Friday night may consist of hanging out with friends, having a few cocktails or maybe catching a little music. But why not incorporate all that into your evening and toss in a good cause to boot?

    Brownie’s The Shed (237 Wittington Parkway) is going to be hosting “Prayers for Pete” this Friday June 27 from 7 p.m. to midnight. There is no cover charge, but all money raised will go to support former University of Louisville football player Pete Nochta as he fights for his life.

    Nochta was recently diagnosed with Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma, a blood cancer that causes rapid and uncontrollable white cell growth.

    In a harrowing Gofundme campaign, over $36,000 was raised in just five days to support Nochta through his disease. As impressive as that amount may seem, it doesn’t even come close to covering Nochta's medical bills, which is where “Prayers for Pete” hopes to help.

    So come out and spend your Friday night with the crack staff of Brownie’s and pitch-in to help. These are moments of tall order, when communities can come together to make a difference in an indivdual's life.

    There will be food and beer on the patio, as well as outdoor music from King Montague and Calen and Clay as they work their way through high energy sets, playing some of your favorite songs until well into the morning. What more can you ask of a Friday night out?

    The music and fundraiser will kick off Friday June 26 at 7 p.m. at Brownie’s (the 237 Wittington Parkway location) and will go on all night, so come down, support a good cause and help a local hero who is fighting the fight of his life.

    About Brent Owen

    Born and raised in Louisville, I have lived here most of my life (except during a short furlough, when I, lovelorn and naive, followed a girl to Baton Rouge). My roots are here, my family, my friends, and my life are all here. I work primarily as a free-lance writer for a few local and regional publications. I have also written two books (one a memoir, the other a novel) that barring some divine intervention, will probably never see the light of day. I find myself deeply ingrained in the local bar scene, or perhaps better said, I often indulge in the local drinking culture. I love music, movies, comedy, and really just about any other live performance art.
