Non-profits are looking forward to welcoming you back to events in 2022 after some have been canceled for two years straight. The pandemic raised health concerns for attendees and volunteers, forcing many non-profits to cancel the events that make up a large portion of their fundraising efforts. While some organizations like the Brussels Lions Club and the Southern Door Fire Department were able to transition to drive-through events, the Kewaunee and Dyckesville Lions Club could not do the same for its Roar Off the Shore Brewfest. The brewfest was one of the first local events shut down by the pandemic in 2020. The pandemic was also to blame for the 2021 event being canceled. Kewaunee Lions Club member John Mastalir says that nearly 90 percent of its funding for the year was wiped out for two years in a row. That meant less money for state and national projects through the Lions Club, but it never wavered from its local support.
This Saturday marks the return of the Roar Off The Shore Brewfest at the Kewaunee County Fairgrounds Expo Hall, where dozens of breweries and wineries will be pouring samples for ticketed guests. All proceeds will go to benefit projects led by the Kewaunee and Dyckesville Lions Clubs. You can find more details about the event by clicking this link.
