The Frothy Beard Brewing Company, 1401 Sam Rittenberg Boulevard, Charleston, SC
Saturday, October 12, 2019, 12 – 5pm

“Zombie Bob’s Pizza and Frothy Beard Brewing are honored to host a fundraiser and silent auction for Carolina Bowen, co-founder of Area 51 food truck on Saturday, October 12th from 12PM-5PM.

Carolina is in need of a pancreas transplant due to Type 1 Diabetes. While 200,000 people under the age of 20 have Type 1 Diabetes – Carolina Bowen is one of those 200,000. At just 19 years old, Carolina has been sick since she was 7 years old. She’s been actively listed and waiting on a deceased donor call for eight weeks now.

Her illness has deteriorated over the years and her journey has been incredibly hard. Type 1 Diabetes is a relentless disease – and unfortunately it knocked Carolina down harder than it has others.

Carolina was going to go into pediatric medicine but is now unable to because of the immunosuppressants she will be on.

Zombie Bob’s and Frothy want to help Carolina not only reach, but surpass her goal of $5,000 – which will help with housing and lost income as well as insulin, medical bills, and more.

If you are a local (or non-local!) business, artist, or venue and would like to donate to our silent auction, please let us know. And, if you know anyone else who wants to help Carolina with her illness, please pass this along and share with the community.

Let’s help Carolina reach her goal so she can get better and keeping serving the people of Charleston some awesome food from Area 51 Foods!”
