As I am prone to doing with my insatiable desire to get information from multiple sources I stumble across a string of fund raising events either to support local breweries (see Water Street) or in the case of Boundary Bay supporting a local non-profit.
Since 2007 Boundary Bay has played host to local music and other entertainment and in exchange has donated the proceeds from the admission to charities such as the Whatcom Dispute Resolution Center, or the Bellingham Food Bank.
March 20th (2009) they will continue the tradition with their Friday Night Late Show featuring Boris Budd and the Waterboarders with guests Candysound. Money generated from this event will be donated to Animals as Natural Therapy.
"Every other Friday night, a different local non-profit will be at the receiving end of the money raised by the $4 cover price for the Boundary Bay Late Show. Non-profits who need fundraising should contact Janet Lightner at 360-647-5593 or by filling out the comment card on the contact page of our website." -source, Boundary Bay Brewery's Events listings
Also if you're going to be up that way on the 17th, head on over for their St. Patrick's Day Celebration.
