Triangle Hops for Hope 2017 is on Saturday, September 23 from 2-6 p.m. in the back lot of Raleigh Beer Garden. We’re expecting more than 900 guests for a day of fun and beer to raise money for Children’s Flight of Hope. This year’s event will feature 25 teams and their one-of-a-kind casks made with the local breweries.
General admission tickets are just $25 each and include entry to the event, a tasting glass, cask list for unlimited tasting and live music. T-shirts and merchandise will be available for additional purchase.
It was chance that brought the original Hops for Hope event committee together in 2015. A simple conversation about a shared hometown led committee members Jennifer and Pete to renew their interest in connecting with their community and how they could give back. After much brainstorming, they wanted to do something big to help children – they just weren’t sure of the how or what. When Jennifer heard about Children’s Flight of Hope through her work at the Captrust Community Foundation, she knew it would be a perfect fit. She got her workplace involved, as did Pete with Tir na Nog, and the committee continued to grow from there. With only a few months of planning that first year, Hops for Hope was born and raised tens of thousands of dollars for CFOH. The event continues to grow while staying true to its roots as way to get involved with the community, while benefiting even more children in need!
