The cold of the winter is here, which is a critical time for the area’s hungry. Never have donations to the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank been more vital.
Here’s you chance to help while also entering to win a seat at a special food and beer event this weekend. Sunday, January 7, at 4 pm is the Beer Run auction experience from The Charlottesville 29 Restaurant Auctions: The Ultimate Sausage Fest and Beer Class. Josh Hunt, owner of Beer Run and Kardinal Hall, and Hunter Smith, owner of Champion Brewing Company, will walk twelve guests through a variety of styles of beer, including tastings of rare and highly-rated ales. As for food, JM Stock Provisions will generously provide their award-winning charcuterie and sausages to pair with the beer, along with house-made sausages from Kardinal Hall.
The auction experience was designed for twelve people, but won by a group of ten with a bid of $1,500. To help generate even more donations for the area’s hungry, the winning group is offering the two open slots in a raffle.
To enter to win, you must: (1) Like or comment on this Facebook post; and(2) Donate here to the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank. Entrants must forward their donation confirmation email to email@example.com. Each $5 donation will count as one entry. Want one entry? Make a $5 donation. Want to double your chances? Donate $10.

The winner, selected at random, will be announced Friday, January 5 at 4 pm, and will receive both open slots to The Ultimate Sausage Fest and Beer Class. But, there are no losers, as all of your entries will help the area’s hungry. Good luck. And, thank you for your support.
