Kona Brewers Fest announces 2015 beneficiaries


Thousands of craft beer lovers will descend upon Kailua Village for the Kona Brewers Festival, March 11-14.

Bringing together beer aficionados, island­ cuisine enthusiasts and fun seekers alike, everyone comes for a good time. However, one of the most important aspects of the Festival is more significant than beer and culinary pairings.

For the past 20 years, as the Kona Brewers Festival flourished, it has also succeeded in raising over $750,000 for well­-deserving Big Island non­profit organizations.

This year, the Festival’s goal is to raise $100,000.

The Bill Healy Foundation, the founding organization behind the Festival, is committed to responsible grant making through thoughtful choices.

The organization recognizes the fragile interdependence between the environment and human beings and has chosen these two points of focus; environmental conservation and the well being of children.

The Festival proceeds benefit non­profit organizations that share resources and create collaborative programs for the community. What makes the festive unique, is that the beneficiaries recruit volunteers and provide expertise so that the celebration runs smoothly.

They then become friends and continue to support one another well after the festival has ended.
