Haymarket Brewery donates more than $7,000 to Berrien County Youth Fair
BERRIEN SPRINGS — The Berrien County Youth Fair was presented with a check at the Haymarket Taproom and Brewery on Thursday, Dec. 6.
The BCYF accepted a $7,864.04 donation from the Haymarket Taproom and Brewery quarterly Giveback program, to be used to for the Fund a Need program.
The Haymarket Brewery quarterly Giveback program chooses one local charity to donate to every quarter. Haymarket is a non-tipping establishment, so guests are encouraged to donate the amount they would have tipped towards that quarter’s chosen charity. The charity then has the option to host an event at the Haymarket Brewery and Taproom at 9301 Red Arrow Highway in Bridgman.
The Berrien County Youth Fair was chosen as the 2018 third-quarter giveback charity and also hosted a corn hole tournament and children’s pedal pull on Sept. 15. Haymarket Brewery officials presented a $7,864.04 check to Fair Board President Corey Burks and BCYF Fundraising Co-Chairmen Karen Klug this past Thursday.
The Berrien County Youth Fair plans to use the donated money for the Fund a Need projects. A list of improvement projects in and around the fair.
