JOIN US FOR THE 9TH ANNUAL BEARD GROWING CONTEST!
What is the Beard Growing Contest all about?
We are a grassroots fundraising campaign created to give back to our community while having a ton of fun. Our beneficiary is the non-profit,Rooms of Hope, whose mission is to provide dream rooms for local children battling life threatening illnesses. Check them out at www.roomsofhope.org.
How do you get started?
Kick-off is Saturday, November 5th at 9AM at First Street Alehouse. A $20 buy-in (100% goes to Rooms of Hope) shows your commitment and gets you breakfast. Arrive clean shaven, mustaches are okay. We will take your photo and have a brief presentation about Rooms of Hope so you better understand how ever dollar you raise will change the lives of families inneed.
Contact your friends and family and encourage them to sponsor your beard. Check with your employers, many companies have matching programs. Each contestant will have an individual Pay-Pal account linked to the Alehouse web page so donations can be made online or you can bring in cash or checks made out to Rooms of Hope. We have prizes for the top fundraisers, but the competition is tough!
On December 17th we will have our Beards & Brews event, where the top fundraisers will be awarded, and prizes will be given out for “Best Beards.” We will also have live bands, food, games, auctions and much, much more. This event is at the Veteran’s Hall, 522 South L Street from 2-6 PM. (More details to follow….)
If you know anyone who would be interested in helping us make this our best fundraising year yet please pass along this info. Truly, the more the harrier…. I mean merrier. We look forward to seeing you all on the 5th and watching you morph into mountain men over the next six weeks.
Paying Homage to the Beer Can
We’ve unveiled the largest publicly displayed beer can collection in the United States! David Goett has been collecting rare beer cans since he was in college in the 1970’s, and now his 6000 beer can collection is on permanent display at the First Street Alehouse.
