The ninth annual Davis BeerFest is on Saturday June 1 at Sudwerk Brewing Co. on 2001 Second Street. This event is a fundraiser for local charity Citizens Who Care (CWC) and will last from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
CWC has been a nonprofit organization in Yolo County for 25 years and they serve the elderly and their family caregivers said Walter Sykes from CWC.
The organization has three main programs to help the elderly. They send volunteers to elderly people who need assistance around the home. They also give caregivers time off by organizing activities at the senior center for elderly residents. Additionally, CWC has a convalescent hospital program which provides companionship and mental stimulation to socially isolated elderly residents.
According to a press release, this year’s BeerFest will feature over 100 different microbrews. Live music performed by three bands, ZuhG, Massive Delicious and Lava pups, will be featured at the event. Sudwerk brewery tours will also be available.
Tickets are $38 in advance, $45 at the door and $10 for designated drivers. Advance tickets can be purchased online, in person at Sudwerks and the local CWC office in Woodland or by phone at 530-758-3704.
All proceeds from the event will benefit CWC’s programs.
