On Thursday, November 4th, all of us at the Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy gathered raffle items, hats, t-shirts, decorations, lists of people attending, and countless other items and headed over to Highland Brewing Company to set up for our fundraiser, “Expose Yourself to Brews & Views,” that we had been planning for months. The event was held at Highland Brewing Company’s new tasting room, an urban-chic space that incorporates old railroad cars as offices, a full-service bar, and beautiful handmade wooden tables and benches. Hickory Nut Gap Farm and Flying Cloud Farm, two notable farming operations in the area that SAHC has protected, as well as Mountain Harvest Organics, provided meat and produce to Ritrovo Pizzeria who catered the event. Highland Brewing generously donated beer for the event and featured many varieties of beer including Little Hump, a favorite of Jay Leutze, one of our board members. The Overflow Jug band and the Trainwreks played music throughout the evening and kept the party going. Guests enjoyed entering a raffle where they won prizes like a hot air balloon ride, Patagonia backpack, gift certificate to Biowheels, and two passes for a Navitat Tree Canopy Tour, among other great prizes. All proceeds from the event benefited SAHC so we can continue our vital work. We are so thankful to all who attended, our volunteers, partners, and sponsors for making it a great event.
