Left Hand Brewing to hold "Fire Fundraiser" September 22

Longmont's Left Hand Brewing Company is hosting a fundraising event for victims of the Fourmile Canyon Fire.

Left Hand's ‘Fire Fundraiser’ will be held Wednesday, September 22, from 6-9pm, at 1265 Boston Avenue in Longmont.

Local musicians Kort McCumber, Tom Cornwell, and Travis Bush will perform that evening, even donating their tips that night to the cause. Kort McCumber and his family are canyon residents who were evacuated as a result of the fire.

A silent auction will also be held that evening, featuring authentic local artwork and crafts, local handmade quilts and paintings, gift certificates for Longmont businesses, Left Hand Brewing beer and merchandise, and a “Brew Day at Left Hand Brewing.”

“We personally know several people who were chased out by the fire and are now homeless,” says Eric Wallace, President of Left Hand Brewing, “and we want to help anyway that we can.”
All donations, cover charges, earnings from the silent auction, tips for the band, and $1 per pint sold will go directly to the Foothills United Way Fourmile Canyon Fire Relief Fund, which is designed to address unmet immediate needs, as well as provide for long-term recovery for fire victims and the community.

For more information about the event contact, please contact Joshua Goldberg at Left Hand Brewing Company, or Pat Monacelli at Foothills United Way.
