Maine Sunday Telegram/ Scene & Heard: Brews & Backpacks Fundraiser Supports Children in Crisis

By August 6, 2016October 26th, 2016News, Uncategorized

On Thursday, June 23rd, Spurwink hosted a Brews & Backpacks event at Shipyard Brewing Company at 86 Newbury Street in Portland to benefit children in crisis. This interactive fundraiser took place on the outside lot and in the tasting room included: Shipyard beer and Capt’n Eli’s soda, food trucks from Mami and Ziggy’s, a DJ and a chance to do good by filling or purchasing backpacks with donated toys, books, school supplies, and hygiene items for children entering Spurwink’s foster care, child abuse treatment, and residential programs.

Spurwink extends our appreciation and gratitude to Shipyard for their hospitality and to our Annual Corporate Partner sponsors from Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and Cate Street Capital.
