 Four Peaks Brewing Company raises more than $15,000

to fund Lauren and Aidan’s wish

 

PHOENIX ( March 25, 2014) – In just two months, Four Peaks Brewing Company was able to raise $15,259 toward two future Make-A-Wish® Arizona wishes thanks to a fundraiser in their restaurants.

“We are excited to partner with Make-A-Wish Arizona and to help grant wishes of local Arizona wish kids,” said Jim Scussel, Co-Owner of Four Peaks Brewing Company “As a local Arizona business, it is important that we help our community in any way we can.  We are ecstatic and gratified about the wonderful support from our customers and for this opportunity to give back.”

The fundraiser encouraged customers to make donations at Four Peaks locations and gave away a Four Peaks Brewery Kegerator to help fund two Arizona wishes for wish kids, Lauren, who wishes to have her own video-making equipment, and Aidan, who wishes to meet Nathan Saway, a famous Lego artist.  The fundraiser ended during Arizona Beer Week, with a silent auction held at the Four Peaks Tasting Room on Wilson. Four Peaks donated 100 percent of  the money collected to Make-A-Wish Arizona.

“The money raised from the Four Peaks fundraiser helped grant an additional two wishes here in Arizona, where Make-A-Wish was founded,” said Elizabeth Reich, president and chief executive officer for Make-A-Wish Arizona. “We are thankful to have such a passionate and community-oriented business supporting our chapter and our Arizona wish kids.”
