Thank You From The California Festival of Beers

For 31 years, the California Festival of Beers has been bringing craft beer, music and fun to the Central Coast. And, for more than 28 years the event has been organized and put on by Hospice of San Luis Obispo County (Hospice SLO County) a local, nonprofit, volunteer hospice with 100% of the proceeds benefiting our organization. 
 
For many years, this fundraising event has been a major source of funding that has allowed Hospice SLO County to continue its mission to provide free in-home support and respite care for individuals and their families coping with a life limiting illness; grief counseling and support groups; community response to schools, businesses and organizations; and ongoing community and professional education about issues related to serious illness, dying and grief. 
 
After careful consideration, we have made the very difficult decision to discontinue the California Festival of Beers, locally known as the “BeerFest”. This event, and the benefit realized directly by the thousands of individuals who received free services as a result, cannot be overstated. We sincerely appreciate your past support and generosity.
 
Under Hospice of San Luis Obispo County, 100% of your support was a donation to our non-profit and could be claimed as such. Please be advised, any other Beer Festival in 2018 taking place Memorial Day Weekend at Madonna Meadows is no longer an event associated with Hospice of San Luis Obispo County.
 
Should you have any questions, please contact Gracie Rey at 805.544.2266 or [email protected]. We look forward to seeing you at future Hospice SLO County fundraising events and appreciate your continued support.
