NEW SCOTLAND CO. LAUNCHES MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS FUNDRAISER
DARTMOUTH, NS ---
Nova Scotia’s New Scotland Co. continues to lean into the fight to end Multiple Sclerosis (MS). For the third time, the company is releasing an exclusive line of products designed specifically to reach their goal of raising $10,000 - proceeds from new t-shirts, hoodies and exclusive craft beer will go to the MS Society of Canada to help fund programs, research and advocacy for people living with multiple sclerosis.
The company, co-founded by brothers Kevin and Scott Saccary, are directly affected by MS. Kevin was diagnosed with MS over a decade ago, and believes that one of the best ways to help those living with the disease is through education and awareness. The brothers developed a signature beer called All Together Red Ale, Red Lion t-shirts and hoodies to sell online and in their Dartmouth brewery and clothing store to raise funds.
“We want people to be aware of how prevalent this disease is in Canada,” said Kevin. “In Atlantic Canada, we rank higher than anywhere else in the world with over 7,000 diagnosed cases. Tremendous progress is being made– and we want to keep the momentum going in the right direction. We really do believe that we can make a difference in understanding, awareness, compassion and quality of life for those affected.”
The MS Society of Canada has recognized New Scotland Co. as one of their top supporters and embraces the partnership to its fullest.
“Kevin and Scott are heroes in the MS community because they understand the disease first-hand and they are so willing to give back,” says Ben Davis, President of the MS Society’s Atlantic Division. “With the highest rates of MS in the world, we are grateful to have a Made in Canada company, selling a Made in Canada product, to help fight this disease.”
"All Together" Red Ale
We brewed this beer to honour the families affected by MS, and to play a small role in the fight for a cure. A good beer doesn't overcome illness, but it does bring people together - and we are stronger when we're all together.
