Leadership Ottawa County (LOC) will be holding a Beer Tasting Party at the Catawba Island Brewing Company on Thursday, Nov. 7. Tickets for the event are now being sold and can be purchased from any LOC board member for $20. Your ticket includes four beer tastings, a fabulous assortment of appetizers and mini cupcakes, entry in the door prize drawing, and the chance to purchase tickets for the Chinese Auction.
Donations for both door prizes and the Chinese auction are appreciated from local businesses and individuals alike. Local art, wines, and event packages are all always popular auction items. Other great ideas are sporting event tickets, beach glass jewelry, and service gift cards.
Funds raised by the LOC Beer Tasting and other fundraising events support our local leadership program and developing leaders in our community. Each year the leadership class focuses on one or two class projects that will benefit the community. Joyful Connections, Take Back the Night, and the Live Here, Buy Here campaign are a few of the recent projects you may have noticed from LOC.
