Additionally, the Bean Fever Fundraiser is set for Thursday, April 28, 2011 at Avery Brewing, 5757 Arapahoe Avenue in Boulder, Colorado.

"Beyond being a part of the La Sportiva family, Bean is an incredible person who needs our help right now,” says La Sportiva Marketing Manager, Laura Fryer. “Now that the website is live, http://www.beanfever.com, we need to spread the word and encourage the entire outdoor community and beyond to lend a helping hand. Whether you know Bean or not, the more people we can cram into the Avery Brewery on April 28th, the better!”

“Words that come to mind when we think about Bean: vibrant, burly, funny, sharp, genuine. Bean is a true hardman, a tough bastard with a kind heart, loyal, never fake, a tell-it-like-it-is person. The real deal!” Bean's friends continue, “ He walks on a nearly fused ankle and climbs and skis harder than most of us ever will, never making excuses and always ready to give his best. The sort of person you want on your side when it hits the fan.”
