Frosty the Brewfest was an epic party with 50 volunteers, 18 sponsors, 7 breweries/cideries, 4 food trucks, and 1200 attendees. We partied, we huddled around burn barrels, we raced fat bikes, the bands rocked, and the craft brews flowed. We raised over $26,000 for two local non-profits. The Kalispell Downtown Association and the Flathead Warming Center. Yesterday we presented the Warming Center with a check for $11,550 and took a tour of this amazing asset to our community.
The Flathead Warming Center is a low barrier shelter that provides a safe and warm space for anyone who needs it. Winters in Montana are cold, long, and relentless. The Flathead Warming Center provides a warm place to sleep at night, showers, laundry, food, medical services, and a sense of community for our homeless population. It doesn't matter if you are suffering from a mental health crisis, drug addition, or if you have no identification, they are here for everyone. Please support the Flathead Warming Center in any way you can. https://flatheadwarmingcenter.org/
