Craft Beer & Whiskey Festival Raises $13,000

November 9, 2016

With $13,000 raised for the Liberty Humane Society from over 250 attendees, the 4th Annual Fall Craft Beer and Whiskey Festival was deemed as a huge success.

“As always, the community has come out, made donations and contributed to a worthy cause,” said Bill Noonan, Senior Director.  “We appreciate all who have attended and donated.   We couldn’t have done it without them.”

Teaming up with the Liberty Humane Society, the Festival featured the best of what the area offers; from beer, wine and whiskey, to local culinary delights.  In addition, a Silent Auction was held, featuring donations from local Hoboken and Jersey City merchants, along with a Cornhole tournament; with 100% of the proceeds going to the shelter.

“I’m a huge animal lover and am always thrilled to raise money and awareness for the Liberty Humane Society” said Rita Gurevich, President and Founder of SPHERE Technology Solutions.  “It is a charity that is close to my heart.”
