AUGUST 31, 2017: The Rescue Brew Festival Has Been Postponed Until Next Year
August 31, 2017 -Earlier this week the 3 volunteers making up the biggest chunk of ticket sale and promotional efforts for the Rescue Brew Festival made the decision to head east to help with TX rescue efforts. As disappointed as we were, as volunteers, they can choose to switch gears and they chose disaster relief over a beer fest fundraiser. After our iniitial shake up we are proud of them. TX is a disaster right now and in our 6 years of rescue this is the 1st time we're being asked to help TX from NM. We will be taking in TX dogs impacted by Hurricane Harvey as soon as we have our building finished and supplies ready.
We contacted our participating breweries and other vendors to find out what they wanted to do. With the sudden lack of people power, the majority of vendors responded that they wanted us to cancel the Rescue Brew Festival and reschedule it for next year so that's what we plan to do. Many are pledging to help with our relief efforts in various ways. If you are a ticket holder and would like a refund of your ticket price donation, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like your donation to go to our rescue efforts, do nothing and you will receive a donation receipt for tax purposes. We are happy to provide either option and we thank you for your support.
