“Cheers for Charity” at Starr Hill Brewery: The Trails Crew will receive $1 for every pint of beer sold during April. So here is another opportunity to drink beer, plus learn how to take care of your bike. Cor, owner of Crozet Bike Shop, will teach us some simple bike maintenance. Door prizes — you could win a free bike tune-up. Why not ride your bike to the brewery — you know you don’t want to be doing your taxes.
Starr Hill Brewery will donate $1 for every pint of beer purchased at the Crozet brewery in April. Help get the fund off to a good start at our kickoff party. Get to know the trails and the trails crew. Food, drink, and maps–maybe even prizes! But fun conversation is guaranteed.
What: Fore Kids Golf Tournament
When: Thursday, Sept. 21. Shotgun start at 1 p.m.
Cost: $320/team of four. Boxed lunches will be provided.
The Fore Kids Golf Tournament is open to all golfers and is hosted by VDOT’s Culpeper District Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign (CVC) Committee, which is a voluntary charitable giving program for state employees that raises funds for numerous nonprofit health and humanitarian organizations throughout the state of Virginia.
This tournament will benefit Piedmont CASA, which provides and supports trained volunteers to advocate for abused and neglected children. Last year, they served 294 boys and girls – more than ever before. Research shows that children with CASA Volunteers spend less time in court, less time in foster homes, obtain more medical care, do better in school, and find safe and permanent homes faster – all keys to breaking the debilitating cycle of abuse and neglect. No other organization performs this service and they do not charge fees.
From a reader:
I recently talked to the local Blue Ridge Food Bank, and they desperately need many items. They especially need canned meat (tuna, spam, salmon…). Therefore I am organizing our first canned food drive for Old Trail, otherwise called a “Meat ‘n Greet!” We are planning on meeting Saturday November 14 from 9-11am at Trailside Coffee. At that time please bring some canned food to give to Blue Ridge Food Bank. If you are unable to make it this Saturday, I will leave the box out the following week. Here are some suggestions of things that are always needed:
Peanut butter and jelly
Thank you in advance for your generosity in helping all those that need a little extra support these holidays. We look forward to seeing you there!
While the author says “Old Trail” I’m saying “Crozet.”
You may remember the original, spontaneous Pie Down from earlier this year. Now, the Pie Down has grown to become bigger, badder and better – proceeds benefiting PACEM.
