Brews and Bites for Windsor Raises $27,000
Last October, the Windsor Community Foundation hosted the 5th Annual Brews and Bites for Windsor, its signature event. Over 160 philanthropic community members attended the gourmet food and craft beer dinner.
The event was held at High Hops Brewery/The Windsor Gardener with gourmet food provided by Chimney Park Restaurant & Bar, Grillhouse at Pelican Lakes, Hearth Restaurant & Pub, Okole Maluna Hawaiian Grill and Pudgie Bear Bakery. Guests enjoyed a 5-course meal paired with special brews from High Hops Brewery, MashLab Brewing and G5 Brewpub, and spirited live and silent auctions.
The event was supported by the following major sponsors: Points West Community Bank and the Olson Family Foundation, Mountain Secure Systems, Hotspots Travel Group, Kaye Monfort/Rose Stoller, GH Phipps Construction Companies, Advantage Bank, Thrivent and Friends and The Community Foundation Hertneky Charitable Fund. The Foundation is also grateful for the support of many other local businesses who donated numerous auction items. Auctioneer services were provided by Adele and Lance Nichols of Nichols Auctioneers and printing was provided by Mail-N-Copy of Windsor. With the support of event attendees and sponsors the event raised over $27,000. Additional significant in-kind contributions also contributed to the success of the event.
“Our board is extremely gratified by the support shown by our community as they participate in this event,” said Windsor Community Foundation Board Chair, Theresa Henry. “It is wonderful to see everyone coming together for a night to enjoy themselves and focus on ways that they can work together to support the Windsor community.”
Proceeds from the event will be used to provide grants to local nonprofit organizations that support the Windsor area and scholarships to Windsor High School students.
