Sometimes all it takes is a few community minded gents and a few tasty beers to make a difference in the lives of those who need help. For the last three years, that is exactly what the Beerworks Charitable Foundation has done for multiple beneficiaries amongst our sunny Treasure Coast family. In the first two years recipients included Learn to Read of St. Lucie County and Kate’s Hope. This year Beerworks is looking to help Dogs and Cats Forever (our four legged friends deserve help too), Alzheimer’s Association’s Memory Walk, Michael’s Message, and Harvest Food Outreach. A civil affair, fun reigns and charity benefits all under a sense of responsibility as hundreds descend upon the downtown Fort Pierce City Hall Parking Garage from as far away as Miami and beyond. Closer to home, I too can make a difference in someone’s life and so can you simply by savoring beers as rich in diversity as the women and men attending this year’s 3rd Annual Treasure Coast Beer Fest (treasurecoastbeerfest.com). More than just a fest; it is passion incarnate thanks to Marc Boland, Mark Carbone, Greg Heller, Eric Halberg, Will Roberts, and Joe Greenwald who never fail to put anything less than the entirety of their being into making TCBF great. This year’s event will be especially poignant as we celebrate on September 11th 2010 from 1pm to 5pm the life and freedom of America which makes events such as this possible. I consider it a privilege and honor to share in this wonderful example of human hospitality and charity through the practically perfect venue of good beers. From my heart to yours, cheers, thanks, and see you there.
