INSANE charity beer cellar raffle at Belmont Party Supply

This hit my Facebook feed and I nearly had a heart attack. It seems a member of the craft beer community was in an accident and is currently in the ICU. Naturally, medical bills are piling up quick and an EXTREMELY generous craft beer community has donated an insane beer cellar to be raffled off. 100% of the proceeds will be given to the family. Tickets are $5 each.

I will likely make a trip up there to buy some tickets and, if there is any interest, I would be open to pooling money for a group buy of tickets (everyone contributes the same amount, the more that join the better our odds). If the group wins, we host an insanely epic party where all bottles are opened! Let me know if there is interest and I will look into the logistics of organizing it. If there is no interest, I would encourage those interested to give generously.

UPDATE 7/29: There was a fair amount of interest so I set up a site to collect money for a group buy of tickets. Please get your donation in by 8/8 so I have time to get up there to buy the tickets. I am asking that everyone chip in $20 to make it worth our while to (1) raise a lot of money for this ill man and (2) up our chances of winning since I have to spend gas/time to get up to Dayton. Please buy-in by 8/8 so I have time to get up there.

Here’s the donation site – COLLECTION CLOSED 8/8. If we win, there are two options: (1) throw an awesome party and drink like there’s no tomorrow or (2) split up the loot at random using random.org. I’m good either way (although a party would be more fun). Please spread the word to anyone that may be interested!

As a matter of transparency, my $20 isn’t included in the figure above. Nor is the Jackson I collected from a buddy at work. Also, this is the gross amount and not the total collected net of fees. I will probably lose a few bucks but it’s a good cause and makes it easy to collect the loot.
