Does the elusive “small town feel” still exist? Can it exist in a big place like the Denver metro area? Well, the Great American Beer Festival (GABF) has called the Colorado Front Range its home for 31 years, and over time, we’ve gotten to know our neighbors. More than that, we like to chip in and help them out when the opportunity arises. That’s why, for many years, the GABF has provided donated tickets to charities which then use them in auctions and other activities to raise money for their cause.
In 2012, the GABF donated tickets to nearly 70 charities, with the total value of donations nearing $10,000. Best of all, the charities have been able to leverage the tickets to raise even more money than that, thanks to generous attendees at their events. Organizations ranging from The Children’s Diabetes Foundation to Habitat for Humanity to Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue have supported their work with a little help from the GABF.
If you’re one of our Denver-area neighbors and still need tickets to the festival, keep an eye out at the next charity event you attend—you never know what might be up for auction!
