Alameda’s Churchward Pub to Host Benefit

There will be more than drinks, sports and relaxation going on this Saturday, March 6, at the Churchward Pub — formerly the Pop Inn — on Park Street.

From 9 p.m. until closing, the bar will ask patrons for $5 that will go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. And a DJ will be there playing music for those who want to dance or listen — and to encourage lots of Alamedans to drop in and contribute.

Bar owner Joe Churchward says that his mom Diane was asked by some East Bay resident to host the fund-raiser, and that’s how it got organized.

Try to turn out for the cause if you can.

The Churchward Pub has been very supportive of local causes, like Dance for a Cure, a breast-cancer fund-raiser event held last year.

The bar is located at 1515 Park Street, near Lincoln Avenue.

Note: On March 8, event organizer Teresa Fimby-Christensen, an East Bay chiropractor, said that $1,300 was raised. Congratulations to Teresa and the Churchwards for staging such a successful event.
