The Kona Brewers Festival organizers are humbled by the generosity and amazing talents of our island community. It is with great pleasure to note that over the past 24 years, the Kona Brewers Festival has become one of Kailua Kona’s premier events, raising $1,300,000 for well-deserving non-profit organizations.
The 2020 Beneficiary application is now open, and the deadline to apply is October 18, 2019.
Each of the beneficiaries contribute to the success of the Kona Brewers Festival by recruiting volunteers and professional expertise. Careful evaluation is made to ensure that these organizations effectively achieve their goals and meet critical needs in our community. Priority is given to groups that share resources as well as continually strive to improve and create collaborative programs.
The Kona Brewers Festival is committed to supporting culture, youth, and environmental causes. This event is more than a beer festival, and it is truly a heartfelt and treasured event in Hawaii. People from all walks of life come together in celebration to share in good beer and good will. People meet, catch up on each others lives, work hard together, celebrate success, promise to support each others initiatives and then go back, energized, to continue to deliver their diverse programs across the island.
The application is intentionally low barrier, with a two page limit, so what are you waiting for. If you know a Hawaii Island program that should be a part of Kona Brewers Festival, please share this announcement with them. We look forward to seeing you in March!
