The Ore Dock Brewery hosted a fundraiser Wednesday night for a Marquette man who was diagnosed with a stage four brain tumor. Friends and family got together to celebrate Tyler 'Tulip' Phillips' birthday as well as raise money to help pay for his medical expenses. A $5 donation was suggested at the door and donation jugs were placed around the Ore Dock. People could also participate in a silent auction, buy plants and seed bombs, and make Kimchi for Tyler to take home with him. Organizers say they were blown away with the turnout and support show for Tyler by friends and family.
"The community has really stepped up and just offered up so much of their love their support and financial donations for Tyler its amazing." Associate General Manager of the Ore Dock Anjila Holland said.
Bartenders at the Ore Dock are even donating all of the tips they received tonight to Tyler's fund.
