Brew Fest 2013: Drink for a Cause

Monday, July 29, 2013

Sure, Brew Fest has lots of yummy beer that you have yet to be introduced to. And it is, of course, the most festive way to rub elbows with your neighbors. But did you know that by purchasing a ticket to this amazing event that you are helping to support FIVE non-profits?

Brew Fest originated as a way for four neighborhoods (Hillwood, Innis Arden, Richmond Beach and Richmond Highlands) to promote community and partnerships, and do a little fundraising. 

Last year, the Board decided to add a charity as an honorary fifth neighborhood, sharing equally in the profits. For that first year, they chose to support New Beginnings, a domestic violence nonprofit: They provide an array of services including 24-hour emergency shelter, transitional housing, information and referrals, legal clinics, support groups, individual advocacy, and community education. 

4-Corners was able to present a check to New Beginnings for $1250 as a result of the 2nd annual Brew Fest.

This year, they are pleased to support The WORKS, a  Shoreline PTA Council committee that provides support to Shoreline School District families experiencing circumstances that make it challenging to clothe their children for school. 

The WORKS accepts washed, gently used children’s and teen clothing, clean shoes, purses and backpacks Wednesday evenings 6:00-8:30pm at the sorting room located in the south portable at North City Elementary. The WORKS also provides each child new socks, underwear and hygiene products at the Back to School Event or a family’s first visit to The WORKS each school year.

We would love to be able to present similar (or larger) check to the WORKS after this, the 3rd annual Brew Fest. We hope you agree and make plans to eat, drink, be merry, and toast your support of this great organization.
