Charlotte Fundraiser – Queen City Brewers Festival
On Feb. 4 our Charlotte program held its annual winter fundraiser, Queen City Brewers Festival, at The Fillmore in Charlotte, NC. QCBF brings together the Charlotte area’s breweries, artisan restaurants, local artists and sponsors to support our mission to serve more families in the Charlotte community affected by autism. In total, over 2,000 attendees and event staff enjoyed two tasting sessions raising just over $50,000 to help us expand program locations, train more volunteers, offer special events and produce this year’s Racquet Run. Cheers to all who attended!
