CHARLOTTE, N.C. (November 4, 2015) – SHARE Charlotte, a one-stop shop connecting the community with local nonprofits, announced today their partnership with Heist Brewery (Heist). The brewery will host the official #GivingTuesdayCLT celebratory events. To start the three-week campaign, Heist Brewery will open its doors on Nov. 10 to campaign supporters and the general public to kick off the second annual #GivingTuesdayCLT. In support of SHARE Charlotte’s $2-million-dollar goal for 2015, Heist will also be unveiling a special brew, appropriately named My Gift, to be served during the campaign period with a portion of proceeds going back to the participating 108 nonprofits.
“We are so excited to be able to launch, and close, this year’s campaign at Heist,” said Kelly Brooks, Founder of SHARE Charlotte. “In addition to being one of the region’s greatest breweries, they are dedicated supporters of the Charlotte nonprofit community.”
Lindsay, of the Ace & TJ Show, Charlotte Checkers players and a variety of local influencers will be in attendance at the Nov. 10 kick-off event to celebrate #GivingTuesdayCLT. Also onsite for the kickoff event will be the iHeart Radio van streaming music. On Dec. 1, Michelle Boudin of WCNC, will emcee the closing event and celebrate the campaign on the final day of the #GivingTuesdayCLT campaign.
During both events, guests will enjoy Heist’s menu of craft beers, cocktails and creative cuisine. The Charlotte Checkers CheckMates will also be onsite to show their support. Heist will be selling Crowlers with custom #GivingTuesdayCLT labels, and giving a percentage of sales back to the campaign.
“Heist is honored to be the official location for SHARE Charlotte’s #GivingTuesdayCLT campaign,” said owner Kurt Hogan. “This is a remarkable organization in our community, and we’re thrilled we can host both events, as well as help showcase the campaign’s success.”
Both events are free and open to the public. For more information or to learn how to make a gift during the campaign, visit SHARECharlotte.com.
