The Rotary Club of Fishers and local Indiana craft brewers are teaming up this month for the third annual Fishers On Tap winter fundraiser.
The event takes place from 4 to 7 p.m. Feb. 22 at the FORUM Conference & Events Center, 11313 USA Parkway, Fishers. The Rotarians plan to have a total of eight craft breweries available to sling samples of their brews including past participants Daredevil Brewing Co., Sun King Brewing Co., Upland Brewing Co., Bier Brewery, Flat12 Bierwerks and Barley Island Brewing Co., Union Brewing Co., and Peoples Brewery Co.
General admission tickets cost $40, and tickets for designated drivers are $20, and can be purchased at www.fishersontap.com.
Money raised at the event has been designated for youth and child services in the local community. In some cases the Fishers Rotary club will be able to apply for matching grants from their Rotary Foundation to double the impact that the event proceeds will have on children and young adults.
The club expects another sellout crowd of 450 guests to come out for an evening of great local craft beer, live entertainment, food samples from local restaurants, 50/50 raffle, and plenty of giveaways from local businesses.
“This annual event has become a key fundraiser for our club to help us make a difference in the lives of residents in our community who need help. We are looking forward to using these funds in support of this year’s focus, children and youth services,” Michele Whelchel, president elect.
The first Fishers On Tap event in 2012 raised $2,500 for various charities with the second netting $8,200. This year, due to strong sponsorship support by local businesses and our title sponsor, Elfcu, to help cover the event’s costs, they expect to grow the net earnings significantly.
Fishers On Tap – Summer will return again June 14, which is being held at the newly constructed outdoor amphitheater on the Town of Fishers municipal complex.
