Loveland, CO – Gnarly Barley Brew Festival, in conjunction with WeldWerks Brewing, presented Weld County-based Women2Women (W2W) with a donation to help provide one-time financial assistance to women in need.
WeldWerks Brewing received the most votes in the People’s Choice competition at the Gnarly Barley Brew Festival on Aug. 6 at the Larimer County Fair at The Ranch in Loveland. As a result, $500 was donated to a charity of the brewery’s choice.
Since 2009, W2W has provided immediate one-time financial assistance to over 900 local women through a referral and application system in cooperation with other 501(c)(3) organizations. The organization’s goal is to provide a “hand up” that helps women who have unexpected expenses, and to date, over $370,000 has been given to assist Weld County women and their families.
“We are honored that WeldWerks chose to donate their Gnarly Barley winnings to W2W,” said Mary Wilson, Women2Women president. “We love the work that we do, and it makes us truly happy that WeldWerks does too.
“100 percent of donations go directly to helping women in need, so gifts like this one from WeldWerks really make a difference,” Mary said.
