LCBW Golf Scramble!!!

Hey, all. We're here with an exciting announcement for all of you Louisville Craft Beer Week supporters.

On Monday August 9th, we'll be putting on the 1st LCBW Golf Scramble to help us raise funds for all the great events we are planning for Louisville Craft Beer Week. The event will take place at Glen Oaks Country Club, beginning at 9 a.m. Cost for the scramble will be $70/person. That price will include greens fees, cart, lunch and refreshments (soda, water and, of course, beer). We are in need of 27 teams in order to pull this off. Its going to be a great event.

Unable to play, but you'd still like to help out? We will be selling Hole Sponsorships for $75/hole. This is a great way to get your name out there as a supporter of LCBW and Craft Beer in general.

The money we are trying to raise will go to help us pay for events such at a Craft Beer Cruise on the Belle of Louisville and Volksfest (the closing party for the 1st Annual LCBW). These events will generate revenue, and any extra monies collected past our expenses will be divided between our four charities (Juvenille Diabetes Research Fund, WHAS Crusade for Children, Kentucky Humane Society and Kentucky Waterways Foundation).

We will have registration forms available very soon. So, if you are interested in participating or sponsoring a hole, please contact us via e-mail at: claycarpenter@bryantdistributing.com

Thanks you all for your support of Louisville Craft Beer Week. We're looking forward to celebrating Craft Beer in Louisville with you all in September. Cheers, all.
