This charity festival benefits two incredible non-profits:
Hero to a Child – This is a Guardian ad Litem program serving Pinellas County. Their mission is to advocate for and support children in our community who have been impacted by neglect or abuse and are in the foster system.
Operation: Craft Beer Drop – This charity was launched locally as a way to send local craft beer to soldiers who are deployed to give them a taste of home while they are away from their homes and loved ones.
