Not one to just do things for the sake of doing them – Old Firehouse owners Adam and Lori are throwing an event this month that I really wanted to make sure everyone was aware of.
Before we dig into the event itself, I want to share the why. One of the biggest things that Adam has talked about with me, is doing the right things, for the right reasons – and this event is a perfect example of pulling everything together, throwing an awesome event for the right reasons.
Austin Caldwell is a firefighter with Fayetteville Fire and EMS as well as the Pierce Twp Fire Department. Recently he sustained serious trauma to his face and his head, and he’s facing an extremely long recovery process.
Old Firehouse Brewery stepped up and offered to put together a benefit to help raise medical funding for Austin – because that’s who they are. That’s what they do.
The Beach Party
When things heat up in the summer in Williamsburg, minds often drift to the beach… longing for the heat to be accompanied by the seashore. When you’re busy operating a busy brewery, though (or drinking at one) you don’t often get the time to venture off to the shore for a summer getaway – so the brewery is bringing one to Clermont County.
The brewery got some help from Arch Materials LLC, a local company, who is donating sand to bring the beach to us. Along with the beach itself, the brewery is encouraging everyone to come in swim suits and Hawaiian shirts or coverups to help turn the occasion into a significant money maker to help offset Austin’s medical expenses.
To help raise money, they will be hosting a number of pay-to-play activities to generate funds, including:
- A Corn Hole Tournament
- Dart Tournament
- Silent Auction
- A 2.00 donation for each $5 OFB pint glass purchased
You can also obviously make a direct donation to the cause as well, either at the event, or by stopping by OFB whenever you can.
The event kicks off at 2pm on June 23rd (Saturday) and continues on through the night. If ever there is a good reason to make your way back out to OFB… this is probably the right one.
