Whales for Wishes 2021

Despite having to be virtual-only for the second year in a row, we rasised over $45,000 for Make-A-Wish!

For the second year we needed to host Whales for Wishes virtually, but despite the challenges – and thanks to all of our amazing supports – we were still able to raise over $45,000 for Make-A-Wish. That’s enough to grant 7 wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions.

ABOUT WHALES FOR WISHES

What is a bottle share?

A bottle share is an event where each person brings beer to open and share with other attendees. Shares can be spontaneous or planned weeks in advance, and they range in size from a few close friends to large gatherings. Each year Whales for Wishes has hundreds of bottles of rare and hard to find beers that will be opened and shared with the attendees throughout the afternoon. Additionally, we’ll be raffling off various gifts baskets, prizes, and rare bottles throughout the event. 

Don’t miss our announcements!
