Close to 750 people attended the Battle of the Brews event at Surrey Civic Plaza on Saturday (Aug. 24).
The sold-out beer festival was a third-annual fundraiser for Athletics 4 Kids and Surrey Fire Fighters’ Charitable Society youth initiatives.
“We grossed over $42,000!” Jordan Sadowski, a lead planner of the event, told the Now-Leader.
