Despite the cyclonic weather, locals and beer lovers braved the rain and showed their community spirit supporting Stone & Wood’s annual event on 11 June, listening to local music, eating local food and celebrating the release of their seasonal Stone Beer while raising money for Liberation Larder and Bay FM.
Combining the $1,800 that volunteers raised on the door, Stone & Wood’s managing director Ben Summons said they were able to contribute $8,861 to the two not-for-profits.
Under a marquee friends, families and kids heard Bunny Racket, MT Warning, Your Mates DJ, Polish Club and Kingswood while sipping this year’s Stone Beer.
‘We were just so humbled that, despite the rain, our community still came to support the event, enjoy a few beers and have a good time. With the event selling out in just two days, we are already thinking about next year and what’s the best option for this community-favourite event,’ Ben said.
Liberation Larder president Helen Hamilton said, ‘We were just overwhelmed by the community’s generosity, Stone and Wood’s generosity and inviting us to be the charity for the evening. It means so much to us. Every cent will go back to our food program, and provide meals for those in the community who need it most,’ said Helen Hamilton.
