Beer: The fundraiser of choice

Posted By on Wed, Jul 30, 2014 at 3:43 PM

New Belgium Brewing Co. just released stats on July 17's Clips Beer & Film Tour that brought 1,600 folks to America the Beautiful Park. 

They say $12,018 was raised, up 120-percent from 2013. That money goes to Medicine Wheel Trail Advocates and UpaDowna, both Indy Give! participants as well. 

Your next chance to do good by drinking takes place this Saturday, also in A the B Park, at the 8th annual Springs Beer Fest. A hefty and quite respectable batch of more than 50 breweries has been assembled by hosting agencies Old Chicago and Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery

Proceeds from this event will go toward Care and Share Food Bank for Southern Colorado, another Indy Give! beneficiary as well. Event organizers say more than $100,000 has been raised in the first seven years for area charities. 

The fest runs from noon to 4; find ticket info and everything else at the fest's website.
