Honorary Volunteers of the Month: Barks & Brew Sponsors

Julia D Barks and Brew

Thank you to the generous support of our sponsors, local supporters and attendees, we had a wildly successful 2018 Barks & Brew and raised just over $22,000!  This year’s event featured live music from Bryce Janey and Vandello, and our emcee Bob James from 98.1 KHAK kept the party rocking all day long!  We had amazing donations to our silent auction including free cupcakes for a year from That One Cupcake Place in Hiawatha, certificates for Iowa Goat Yoga, a hot air balloon ride from Buzzards Glory, a Last Hope custom-made yard Jenga set, and not one, but two NFL donations, including an autographed football from the entire 2017 Green Bay Packers team and a signed football from the Minnesota Vikings. Through our continued partnership with NewBo City Market we had a great lineup of breweries and wineries in attendance this year, and actually sold out of tasting cups and growlers midway through our event! For getting the word out, thank you to Lamar Advertising for donating billboard advertising. A special thank you to Bailing Out Benji and K9Cola for joining us at Barks & Brew this year. We would also like to thank Eco Lips for donating hundreds of lip balms to hand out to our attendees this year as well.
