Our third annual harvest beer and food pairing festival and anniversary party. Local restaurants and culinary experts will be teaming up with local and national breweries to bring you an afternoon of culinary and libation delight with a side great music. Featuring local favorites, The Shameless Hex, The Semi Supervillians, and Slim Forsythe. Each beer sample (in a commemorative glass) will be paired with a small plate, so come hungry, you will leave hoppy. We are expecting to have between 22 and 25 pairings. The event will be held again on 56th Street between Butler and Harrison street, rain or shine. The best part, it is all for a great cause. 100% of the proceeds of this benefit go to help fund Camp Chihopi....an annual summer camp for Children who have undergone a transplant at Pittsburgh’s Children’s Hospital. Each year dozens of children undergo a transplant at Children’s Hospital. This is an event that not only turns their world upside down, but that of their entire family. These patients travel from all over the world in order to get the best care available from our neighbor....Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. On average, these families spend 6-9 months relocating to Pittsburgh...often having to give up jobs or be separated from members of their family in order to be with their sick child. During this time, the children and their families form very close bonds with the wonderful Doctors and Nurses, but also the other patients and their families. Camp Chihopi offers a very special opportunity for them to get out and enjoy the typical summer camp activities that every kid wants to partake in....but they have the medical staff there to ensure they can do so safely, and while upholding any lingering treatments or conditions. Camp is an annual activity that transplant kids make their way back to attend year after year. For them, it is a time to reconnect with those closest to them during a very difficult chapter of their life, and to really be themselves in a group that understands and has lived through similar challenges.
