Kona Brewer’s Festival Announces 2015 Beneficiaries

Kona chef GroupFrom March 11-14, 2015, thousands of craft beer lovers will descend upon Kona for the Kona Brewers Festival. Bringing together beer aficionados, island-cuisine enthusiasts and fun lovers alike, everyone comes for a good time. However, one of the most important aspects of the Festival is more significant than beer and culinary pairings.

For the past 20 years, as the Kona Brewers Festival flourished, it has also succeeded in raising $742,000 for well-deserving Big Island non-profit organizations. Initiatives with a goal of supporting children and the environment thrive because of the generosity of festival patrons and the island community. Causes that share resources, strive to improve, and create collaborative programs are a main priority. These beneficiaries in turn recruit volunteers and provide expertise so that the celebration runs smoothly. Beneficiaries and visitors come together for one week to work together, become friends and continue to support one another well after the festival has ended.KPPCSBenefitsFromKBF

This year, there are 20 non-profit organizations benefiting from the work of the Kona Brewers Festival ohana. Big Island groups dedicated to education, art and preservation are the key to the sustainability of the island, and therefore are chosen to benefit from the proceeds of the event. Careful consideration is made to ensure all of these groups achieve their goals and meet specific needs in their communities.
