Golden Elks stage benefit to help homeless vets

On Sept. 20,2014 the Central Northwest District of the Colorado Elks Association held the 4th annual Red, White,
and Brew fundraiser to benefit the Homeless Veterans Stand Down to be held in Nov. at the National Guard Armory.
From 3-5pm the Golden Elks Lodge #2740 hosted the event and we had 10 Lodges participate, one, Englewood Lodge from
the Central Southeast district joined us for the 2nd year in a row.  We sold about 100 tickets and each Lodge brought 2 volunteers
to man the beer tables, each Lodge brought at least 6 beers for tasting.  Most chose beers from their city so there were over 60 beers
to taste and each table had free snacks.
We had a silent auction with each Lodge donating at least 2 items which raised $563.00 which when added to the other ticket sales
gave us a grand total of $2,566.00 which will be turned over to the Colorado Elks Association and they in turn will see that it goes to the
Veterans Stand Down at the right time.
