Summer 2018 Event winner:
Thanks to our hosts, Elmhurst Brewing Company, for offering twelve wonderfully crafted beers. The indoor space and outdoor beer garden are a welcome addition to Elmhurst.
Presented by Hops For Humanity member Pete Dolan, No Frills Fun Run was voted on by our membership to receive Monday's donation. No Frills Fun Run is an annual run started in 2012. Each year, one local family in need is selected to receive 100% of proceeds from all funds raised across various fundraising events.
Hops for Humanity's $10,000 contribution is SIGNIFICANT for this organization, representing roughly 15% of their annual fund.
We heard about two other great charities Monday evening: Erie Family Health Center presented by Michele Shubitowski and Fill a Heart 4 Kids presented by Anna Maria Viti-Welch. Please visit their websites to learn more!
$150,200 total so far!
Once all of the members’ donations are collected, a representative from Hops for Humanity, the nominating member, and any other members who wish to attend will personally present the award to the charity. Information about the actual award presentation will be posted on our website and Facebook page.
