Fore! CAN’d Aid’s 2nd annual Grip, Sip, Give Classic sold out in advance and raised a total of $31,000. That's a lot of good that's being done right there. The team at Oskar Blues Brewery printed up an instant-classic die cut sticker, with a golfer teeing off on a can of America's favorite craft beer featuring the foundation's logo. Their vector artwork really shines on this, with the brand's colors standing out on a custom shape.
And of course, there's a beer theme, as the event starts with a happy hour starting MamaMosas (Mama’s Lil’ Pils + OJ) and then a Shotgun start (get it?). Golfers will play until they've earned their 19th hole beers. The day concludes with a BBQ on the green, event awards, and a rollicking silent auction with raffle prizes.
About Oskar Blues and CAN'd Aid
Oskar Blues Brewery started in Lyons, just up the road from our first factory in Hygiene. Oskar Blues now has factories in North Carolina, Texas, and Colorado, plus they own breweries in Florida and Michigan. They've become quite the craft beer empire, and it's convenient that their Anti-Corporate Headquarters, taproom, barrel room and three restaurants are in our hometown here in Longmont, with locations opening in Boulder and Denver.
The CAN’d Aid Foundation is all about really making difference where they CAN. They have a variety of events across the year in multiple locations, and this one takes places in our backyard here in Longmont.They focus they “do-goodery” efforts on supporting Towns, Tunes, Treads + Trails and Love Yur Mama programs. What does that mean for each of those categories? We'll let them do the talking.
Whether it’s digging our neighbors out of a flood or helping a local business get back on their feet after a disaster, community is at the heart and soul of the CAN’d Aid Foundation. We respond quickly and passionately to help towns across the US.
Outdoor activities feed our soul. We LOVE bikes! We love running, hiking, climbing, camping and soakin’ up sunshine. If a trail needs maintenance, low-income children need a new bike to ride or there’s a program to get more people off the couch and ready to explore the outdoors – CAN’d Aid is ready to make it happen.
We believe music transforms and transcends – it’s the backbone of good times with good friends and should play a major role in our lives – so, we support programs that teach, share, inspire and make a difference through MUSIC, ARTS & CULTURE.
LOVE YOUR MAMA
From our “Crush It Crusade” which helps launch grassroots recycling programs, to jumping in and helping with local cleanup efforts, CAN’d Aid is all about showing love for Mama Earth.
