With Metro CareRing's dollar-stretching, donated-food-gathering, almost-all-volunteer efforts, that money provides a whopping 97,000 meals and feeds the group's clientele for a month. That's huge.
We send out big thanks to the generous and eager breweries who donated their beer and time and made the event possible. The beer list for the Parade was incredible.
Big thanks to Noel Nelson at Westword for the volunteer sponsorship help, and Shamrock Foods for the donated chocolates and desserts for the event.
Like George Bailey in "It's a Wonderful Life," we are fortunate to count so many generous, talented, passionate people in our list of beery allies.
We'll do the event again next year on the first Saturday of December 2012. Mark your calendars now.
Cheers and happy (and hoppy) holidays to you all,
Wynkoop Brewing Company
