Oso Landslide Fundraiser at Chuckanut Brewery & Kitchen

The other day, Mari Kemper of Chuckanut Brewery and Kitchen told me about an event that was being planned in Bellingham. “Whatcom breweries will be putting together a big fundraiser at Chuckanut Brewery & Kitchen’s back covered patio on May 2 for the Red Cross Oso Muslide Relief Fund,” she said. “We plan to have 3 bands, lots of great auction items, and of course beer from Chuckanut Brewery, Boundary Bay Brewing, Kulshan Brewing, Aslan Brewing, Wander Brewing, Menace Brewing, and hopefully North Fork Brewery!”

Now the plan has been solidified. Here’s the press release that showed up today:

BELLINGHAM, Wash. (April 7, 2014) – A fundraiser for the victims of the Oso Landslide will be held at Chuckanut Brewery & Kitchen (601 W. Holly St., Bellingham) from 5 to 9 p.m. on Friday, May 2, 2014. The event will feature a variety of local beers on draft, food, live music, raffle prizes and a silent auction. All proceeds from beer and food sales, raffle tickets and silent auction items will go to the Red Cross “Oso Mudslide Relief Fund.

Since the March 22 tragedy, Red Cross has stationed more than 350 trained disaster workers at or near the slide site, the majority of which are from Washington state. Multiple shelters have been set up, and the volunteers continue to serve countless meals to rescue workers and affected families, provide counselors and case workers to help with individual recovery plans, and so much more

This fundraiser is being put together by the organizers of Bellingham Beer Week and Chuckanut’s owners and staff. Many local and regional businesses have graciously donated items for this event – everything from beer to food, live music to advertising, and raffle prizes to silent auction items.


Cheers to our sponsors, like...
