Since 2008, a group of Left Hand Brewing Company employees and friends have banded together to help put an end to Multiple Sclerosis by supporting and raising funds for several MS bicycle rides around the country. One of these supporters is Brown Distributing Company’s Carolyn Graham. A long-time Jacksonville resident, Graham has been a powerhouse in the world of craft beer for many years. Over the past few years she has used her reach within the beer industry to sponsor and help spread the word about events that raise funds to help with the vital work of defeating MS.
The next event on August 6 supports the Left Hand Brewing Company Bike MS PGA TOUR Cycle to the Shore Ride and the Team Left Hand fundraiser night at the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, North Florida Chapter. Join the Team Left Hand bicylists and other for an evening of FUNdraising and fellowship as the group presents a viewing of the outrageously funny movie “Office Space.”
Along with the movie, guest will be given to opportunity to enjoy several Left Hand Brewing Company beers, and purchase food from Chew Chew Food Truck and 5Loaves 2Fish Mobile Kitchen. In addition, there will be a number of items up for bid in a silent auction including brews from Funky Buddha, Cigar City, 7venth Sun, a brewery tour for six plus a pint and more from Intuition and a wide array of Single Malt Scotches, vodkas, gins, bourbons and more.
In the over seven years Team Left Hand has been fundraising for MS, they have collected over $1 million. The group vows they will not stop supporting and riding in MS events until a cure is found and MS stands for Mystery Solved.
The event takes place at National Multiple Sclerosis Society, North Florida Chapter at 8940 Western Way Suite 16 on Thursday, August 6 beginning at 6:00 p.m. A donation of $10 is requested for guest 21 and over, $5 for guests six to 20 and kids under five are free.
