Some of you may have heard that Kathy Stock, longtime volunteer at homebrew contests and co-brewer with husband Curt of some of the finest homebrew ever produced in this state, is battling brain cancer. The local homebrewing community is working with Kathy’s workplace on a fundraiser that is coming up on Dec. 11, from 5-9, and the Czech hall on West Seventh that has been a venue for many MHBA meetings.
The party will have a goodwill offering, a silent auction and, of course, plenty of homebrew and donated commercial brews. We’re working to set up a PayPal site so that people who can’t be there but want to donate can do so. So, please come, do some bidding. If anyone wants to donate something for the auction, let me know. Likewise, if anyone wants to help with communications or other support, just let me know. PLEASE, help get out this information to other clubs, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
To support Kathy and her family during this difficult time, we are working with her family and friends to organize a benefit to take place on December 11 from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm .
• Free beer (donations from Kathy and Curt’s home-brewing buddies – Yum!)
• Free soda and water (some planned donations)
• Some free appetizers (some planned donations)
• Potluck (feel free to bring a dish to share)
• Silent Auction – many fantastic items have been donated already.
• Music (live and recorded)
The doors will open at 5:00 pm and the silent auction will conclude at 8:00 pm, with the winners announced immediately following. You do not need to be present to win.
The benefit will be held at:
Czech-Slovak Protective Society (CSPS) Hall
383 W Michigan St, St Paul, MN 55102
(northwest corner of W. Michigan St. and W. 7th Street)
Our hope is that through this benefit and silent auction, we can raise money to help with the medical bills and other financial stresses that accompany a serious illness. Please join us in this effort to help make life a little easier for Kathy and her loved ones during this difficult time.
