Beer. Burgers. Wings. Music. Fundraising. Doesn’t get much cooler than that! BRU Fest is entering its fourth year as a successful fundraiser for the Children’s Leukemia Foundation of Michigan (CLF) and is excited to garner the support of Beer City USA! This year, BRU Fest will be held on November 9 from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. and has relocated to Grand Rapids at the Delta Plex; it is expected to be the biggest and the best to date.
CLF recently opened a second office in Grand Rapids and has been thrilled with the success.
President and CEO Bill Seklar says that, “Now that we have a physical presence in West Michigan, we are confident that Grand Rapids is a perfect home for a fun, beer-inspired event that raises awareness and funds…”
In the last three years of BRU Fest, CLF has been able to donate over $75,000 to provide personalized support to people and families affected by leukemia and related blood disorders. We hope that BRU Fest at the Delta Plex will push that number well over $100,000. It should be easy with the incredible line-up of sponsors and events.
The event is casual and an awesome way to use your date night or friend’s night out to do some good. If you can’t make it on the 9th, you can donate here. CLF also has more events coming up, as well as holiday greeting cards for purchase (yes, the holidays are already nearly upon us!).
If you can make it, you won’t be disappointed with the swag. General admission is $39 and includes access to Bell’s Brewery beers (some of which are rare seasonal favorites), four food tickets for Bagger Dave’s Legendary Burger Tavern and Buffalo Wild Wings, a souvenir mug, live entertainment, and tons of free giveaways. Speaking of which, the Awesome Mitten was lucky enough to get two tickets for you, our readers!
Otherwise, get them soon here. Can’t wait to see you at BRU Fest!
