Pints for PEAKS Fall Brew Fest @ ZooMontana
Sep 22 @ 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm

The 2nd Annual Pints for PEAKS Fall Brew Fest will be held at ZooMontana this year!   Join us on Saturday, September 22 from 3pm to 7pm for beer sampling and fun. There will also be wine and non-alcohol drinks and food trucks will be onsite. The event includes live music, a silent auction and a live auction.

P.E.A.K.S. (People Everywhere Are Kind and Sharing) was founded in 1988. The mission of PEAKS is to provide immediate, short term, non-medical assistance to cancer patients (in treatment) experiencing financial hardship. The help comes in many forms, but primarily grocery cards and fuel cards. In some situations money for childcare, utilities and other living expenses have also been granted. The help provided by PEAKS not only impacts the patient but also their families – all of whom are impacted by the cancer diagnosis.  All money raised through the Brew Fest goes to the patients we care for!
