Raising a Glass to a Good Cause

The Sultans of Swig Home Brewers Club and Buffalo Iron Works sponsored the 4th Annual “Santas of Swig” homebrewing competition and fundraiser on December 1 to benefit our Hope Center. There was a great turnout as folks lined up to sample beers from 20 different homebrewers and cast their vote for the best brew.
Guests generously donated a carload of toys for our Hope Center’s Christmas Giveaway and raised nearly $3,000 for our programs. A huge thank you to our friends at the Sultans of Swig, Buffalo Iron Works, and everyone who came out to participate and support our agency!
Happy Holidays!
