PHOTOS: Oktoberfest Fundraiser in the Heights
On Saturday, October 12, Farms in the Heights hosted Oktoberfest. Held at The Distillery Gallery, the charity event raised money to support educational programs, music at next season’s Riverview Farmers Market, and the 2014 Riverview Jazz Festival.
“Over 100 people attended the fundraiser, and $1,500 was raised,” according to Mo Kinberg, President of Farms in the Heights. Highlights included a performance by The Lintet Quartet, pierogies provided by Stanley’s Meat Market on Central Avenue (140 were consumed), and the tapping of the new South Street Pale Ale keg, which was brewed in the Heights using locally gown hops.
“We will definitely do it again, probably next October,” said Kinberg.
