Scare Away Cancer and MCL Construction are committed to safety and will be taking extra steps to help maintain social distancing and health measures. The outdoor event allows for extra space to help everyone enjoy the evening at a safe distance.
“We understand there may be some hesitation about attending an event with lots of people. Boo Brew is outside and we have plenty of space to make sure you feel you can physical distance. We want to make sure everyone feels safe and can have a good time,” added Fucinaro.
Come out and have a few for a good cause, there is nothing scary about it.

For many businesses, navigating the entire construction process and knowing who to trust can be overwhelming. At MCL Construction, our people simplify the process by listening, planning, executing, and continuing the relationship to build their vision.
Scare Away Cancer's annual Boo Brew at Nebraska Brewing Company was a huge success.
An estimated crowd of 200 people gathered to raise a pint (or two) to help in the fight against cancer. $3,700 was raised for Scare Away Cancer, a nonprofit organization that supports patients and families who have immediate needs. The organization also supports cancer programs that provide treatment and services to cancer patients. This year, Scare Away Cancer is helping the Linear Accelerator project at Methodist Health Jennie Edmundson Hospital in Council Bluffs, Iowa.
"It's inspiring to see everyone come and support our cause," said MCL Construction Senior Vice President Tony Fucinaro. "I think this event is a success because it's low key and very relaxed. Everyone here considers each other friends."
Scare Away Cancer is an all-volunteer organization started by the employees of MCL Construction. This year, Boo Brew 3 was supported by a team of volunteers from the Lincoln Financial Group. Its team was instrumental in driving presale tickets to the event, checking in guests, selling raffle tickets, and organizing basket raffle prizes.
Scare Away Cancer's feature event is coming up on October 22 at Anthony's Steakhouse. If you haven't been to our Halloween costume bash, you are missing out! Purchase individual tickets or an entire table by clicking here.
If you were not able to come to Boo Brew and find yourself inspired by those who did, please feel free to make a donation to help us continue our mission of helping, helping in any way we can.
The latest technology in treating cancer is now being utilized at Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital in Council Bluffs, Iowa. The addition of a state-of-the-art linear accelerator gives cancer patients in southwest Iowa the best in cancer care.
"Patients have responded extremely well, they are very positive, and have talked about how calming it is to come into the new room with the new equipment," said Steve Baumert, President and CEO of Methodist Health Jennie Edmundson Hospital.
To make room for the new linear accelerator, MCL Construction carefully coordinated with hospital staff to assure there were no disruptions to hospital services during the project. It took ten months to complete a 3,400 square foot addition that was constructed between the existing hospital and the parking garage on campus. The new addition created a vault for the linear accelerator with the walls being up to five feet thick of concrete. A new control room, exam room, and storage room are also part of the project.
Director of Cancer Services at Jennie Edmundson Hospital, Michelle Kaufman, worked closely with the MCL Construction team throughout the project.
"The guys from MCL were an absolute joy to work with; the communication from day one all the way through to the project was excellent. I think patient care was their number one concern," said Kaufman.
The Cancer Center at Methodist Health Jennie Edmundson is the ONLY nationally accredited cancer center in southwest Iowa and patients may drive an hour or more each way for treatment.
The new linear accelerator will allow the staff at Jennie Edmundson to treat more complex cancers previously referred to other facilities for radiation therapy.
