2016 Beer & Bites is a Great Success

We are so grateful to The Rush Companies, the sponsors, guests and the community for making the 3rd Annual Beer & Bites a great success.  Thanks to the generous support of local business and individuals in the South Sound region, this event raised more than $400,000 for local cancer research.  

Because Beer & Bites was underwritten by The Rush Companies, all of the money raised through sponsorships, table and ticket sales was donated to South Sound CARE Foundation.  Additionally, a Live Auction which featured exciting items such as a fishing trip for four to Sitka, Alaska, a trip for two to New York City including dinner at celebrity chef Bobby Flay's restaurant Bar American and a Broadway show, and an exotic supercar driving experience in Las Vegas, raised more than $118,000.  The Fund-A-Need portion of the event raised another $160,000.

This outpouring of generosity, along with the warm wit of professional actor Matt McCoy who served as emcee, the get-out-of-your-seat-and-dance performance by The Shy Boys, and plenty of great microbrews and gourmet tastings, made for a fabulously fun and successful evening. Our sincerest gratitude to all who participated.
