FANS of Coopers beer have a rare opportunity to chat with the managing director of the much-loved Australian brewery at a fundraising event in Lennox Head this week.

Dr Tim Cooper will be the special guest at Beer and Bubbles by the Beach on Thursday.

It is being hosted by the Lennox Hotel in aid of the Shake It Up Foundation, which raises money for research into finding a cure for Parkinson's disease.

The charity's co-founder, Greg Campbell, who is also a local Lennox Head business owner, said it was a real coup to have Dr Cooper coming to the event.

"Every single dollar from Beer and Bubbles will go straight to Shake It Up and help to take us one step closer to finding a cure."

The Shake It Up Foundation started out as idea between Mr Campbell and his brother, Clyde, after Clyde was diagnosed with Parkinson's in 2009, when he was just 44 years old.

The brothers decided to start looking for better treatments and a cure, and their charity was set up in 2011.

The founding directors made a commitment to personally fund all administrative costs of the Shake It Up Foundation, so 100% of all donations go directly to research.

A critical partnership has also been established with The Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.

To support the Shake It Up Foundation - or to drink Coopers with the man behind the beer - email enquiries@shakeitup.org.au or visit shakeitup.org.au.

Only a limited number of tickets are left for Beer and Bubbles by the Beach.
