Sonoma County, CA. ~ Last October we launched a large fundraising effort for wild- fire victims here in Sonoma County, naming it after one of our existing


Sonoma Pride. In these past 8 months, with the help of over 60 breweries, individuals and businesses from around the world, we raised over $1.1 Million, do- nated 300 bicy- cles to kids, and helped 668 families. We part- nered with 10 other local non- profits to help administer the funds, such as Redwood Em- pire Food Bank, Forget Me Not Farm and St. Vincent de Paul. Council on Aging (COA), a lo- cal non-profit who assists 8,000 seniors in our community and provides their Meals on Wheels program, has taken responsibil-

ity for assisting the hundreds of senior residents who lost their homes in the Journey’s End mobile home park in the

home, St. Vincent de Paul will provide furniture through their “House In A Box” program. The residents will also be able to

receive COA

services and free Meals on Wheels.

This has been the most fulfilling fundraising effort with which we have

ever been

involved. The support from the beer commu- nity worldwide has been noth- ing short of re-

Tubbs Fire. Many of these el- derly residents are still living hotels, staying with friends, or couch surfing. With our recent donation of $400,000 to COA they were able to purchase 5 homes which will be placed in another park here in Santa Rosa, thus getting 5 seniors into their new forever home! In addition to the manufactured

markable. And now we can all proudly say that the money we collectively raised placed 5 Santa Rosa residents back into their own home.

We can’t wait to meet the people who are benefitting di- rectly from these much-needed funds when we deliver their first case of Pliny the Elder!

He is in Field Museum of Natural History, also known as The Field Museum. It is a natural history museum in the city of Chicago, and is one of the largest such museums in the world. The museum main- tains its status as a premier natural history museum through the size and quality of its educational and scientific programs, as well as due to its extensive scientific specimen and artifact collec- tions. The diverse, high quality permanent exhibitions, which attract up to two million visitors annually, range from the earliest fossils to past and current cultures from around the world to interactive programming demonstrating today’s urgent conservation needs. It is named in honor of its first major benefactor, Marshall Field. Go here:
