Burnaby Community Services decided to ditch its annual black tie affair in lieu for a new fresh and FUNdraising event – the inaugural Burnaby Beer Festival.
The event, which was a huge success, featured beer tastings from select Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley micro-breweries, food tastings and live music. Hosted at SpaceKraft, a local shared space for small business owners and budding entrepreneurs, the Merchant crew thought it would be a wonderful opportunity for us to get involved and make a meaningful difference in the community by corporately sponsoring the event.
All proceeds from the event went to help fund programs for low-income families and seniors living alone break the cycle of poverty and isolation. A good time was had by all!
