Rahr & Sons has named WOKC as their 2018 charity partner and will be raising money throughout the year with their weekly Wednesday tastings and several other fundraising events.

This partnership also launches a new WOKC campaign to promote fundraising with other individuals, groups and corporate partners through a program called Wipe Out Wednesday, a way to engage, raise funds, and generate additional resources for the mission.

Chandini Portteus, president and CEO of WOKC said: “We are grateful for national partners like Rahr and the passion they have for our mission. Partnering offers a great opportunity to highlight the need in pediatric cancer and the vital gaps in funding. Rahr shines as an example of incorporating service and philanthropy into their company culture. They recognize the need to make a critical difference in the lives of the families we serve.”

Erin Rahr, President and Co-Founder of Rahr & Sons: “We believe our collaboration with WOKC will raise much-needed awareness and funding for their mission, but also engage new audiences, provide opportunities to inspire people to support them long term and help deliver their mission.”

The first Wednesday tasting is tomorrow, Wednesday, February 14 for the Valentines Mid-Week Tasting from 5-7:30 pm at the brewery. Rahr will be donating a portion of proceeds ($1 per admission) every Wednesday starting tomorrow throughout 2018.
