Volunteers are needed to help with light work in half hour shifts on the day of the event. Volunteering guarantees the warm and fuzzy feeling of being a good person helping a worthy cause. Volunteers will also receive a complimentary Brewnity branded glass. One-hour and longer shifts are available for those seeking additional self-satisfaction. Interested volunteers should obtain a ticket and email Shannon Bowser and Jon Luton for details and to schedule a time.

Jimmy’s No. 43, Burp Castle, and Standings have long been a hub of NYC homebrewing and were closed for two weeks following the explosion. We hope to collect donations from homebrewers to buy gift certificates to those bars and to then include those certificates in the Suds in Solidary raffle. Money raised for the purchase of the gift certificates will support the bars, and all raffle ticket proceeds will be donated to the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City; East Village Building Collapse fund. If you’d like to contribute toward the purchase of these gift certificates, please contact Alex Kalaf
