A night of great music, great food and great beer is all for a great cause.
Four Winds Brewing Co. and Reach Child and Youth Development Society are co-hosting the second annual Cheers for Children on Saturday, Feb. 2 from 5 to 10:30 p.m. at Harris Barn in Ladner.
Tickets for the 19-plus event are $50 and include food (one main and one side) and two beers. There will also be a 50/50 draw and a series of prize draws with the grand prize of a 50l keg and party pump from Four Winds and a gift basket of beer and merchandise worth $300.
“We really appreciate what Reach does as an organization and we wanted to look at ways to be more involved in the community, so we thought we wanted to do a couple of major events per year and this was one of them,” said Four Winds co-founder Adam Mills on why the event was created last year.
“Reach is a wonderful organization to partner with. They offer such a wide range of service to a wide range of children and their families in the community, so they are a great fit to help out and support.”
Mills said Four Winds also wanted to create an event that was yearly and had a real community feel to it.
“Bringing together an event with music, food, drink – all for a good cause – is something everyone can get behind,” he said. “This is a fun event where people can come, connect, learn more about Reach and have a great time.”
Last year’s inaugural event sold out quickly. Mills said ticket sales this year are going well and he expects to be sold out again in a few weeks.
Entertainment will be provided by Lower Mainland acts Marin Patenaude, The Wrangleros and Rocket Revellers. Along with a selection of Four Winds beers, the event will feature brews from Steel & Oak Brewing Co., Twin Sails Brewing, Yellow Dog Brewing and Dageraad Brewing as well as a cider from Greenhill Cider. Non-alcoholic drinks will be provided by Dickie's Ginger Beer while food will be provided by Newmans Fine Foods and the Four Winds Kitchen.
Shuttle 17 and Tsawwassen Shuttles will be offering service to and from the venue (details to be finalized).
“It was such a successful event last year, so much fun, so feel good and we are so looking forward to doing it again,” said Reach communications manager Alison Martin. “This event gives us the opportunity to raise the awareness of Reach’s services with a whole different cross-section of the community, which is a younger demographic of the community, so that’s really fabulous too. We are hugely grateful to Four Winds because these guys work really hard on this event and it’s amazing.”
