QUEENSBURY —  Brewnited announced the latest collaboration fundraiser for local service and hospitality workers: an ongoing raffle series featuring exclusive experiences from local restaurants and attractions, funded in part by a donation from Ball Corporation.

“Ball Corporation believes supporting the communities where we operate is part of who we are and it is one of our sustainability pillars. As we see our society face the hardships imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to provide our employees with the opportunity to help others in our local communities by directing local giving to help those in need. Brewnited is exactly the type of organization that can have locally the biggest impact by our donation,” said Andrea Miele, Ball Corporation.

On Friday May 15, 2020 at Northway Brewing Co., Andrea Miele of Ball Corporation presented Brewnited with a check for $10,000.00. With their generous donation, Brewnited will host a number of auctions featuring exclusive experiences from local restaurants and attractions including a virtual beer tasting with the NYS Brewers Association, a private brunch for two at Bailey’s Saratoga, and more. All proceeds from the auctions will go to Brewnited’s tipped workers’ fund.

“Ball Corporation’s generous contribution will allow Brewnited to continue production and sell Negative Input beer with all profits being distributed locally while allowing Brewnited to expand through the Local Experience program. This will be a direct benefit to local restaurants and attractions while continuing to support local hospitality workers affected by COVID-19,” said Max Oswald, spokesperson for Brewnited.

Starting Friday, May 22, supporters will be able to bid on the Flatbread Social experience: take-out dinner for four from Saratoga’s Flatbread Social.

New experiences will be added to www.wearebrewnited.com every Friday, with bidding open for one week. Visit www.wearebrewnited.com to bid, apply for assistance, or contribute to the fund.
