Drink Beer for Charity. Seriously.

What sets Head for the Hills, the Georgetown Craft Beer Festival, apart from all other festivals?

We are 100% run by volunteers and donate 100% of proceeds to charity. 

There’s never been a better reason to drink beer (and feel good while doing so). After two long COVID years without our festival to raise funds, these charities need our help more than ever. Drink beer for charity. Seriously.

Once again, this year our feature charities are Food4Kids Halton and Cancer Assistance Services of Halton Hills. We are also pleased to support some new charities this year: Distress Centre Halton, CARE (Community Alliance for Reaching Everyone), and the Townsend Smith Foundation.

“A 10-year-old boy waited outside the locked doors of a school breakfast program. The program was to start at 8:15 and the child stood outside at 7:15 in the dark, in the cold and alone. He explained he had not had any food on the weekend and was hungry. Could he please have some food? This child inspired the launch of the Food4Kids program.”
Providing nutritious food for at-risk schoolchildren across Halton to take home over the weekend, Food4Kids currently supports over 900 children in over 100 schools across Halton.

CAShh provides support and hope to cancer patients, family and friends. CAShh is not associated with any cancer organization, nor do they receive any government grants to fund their services. CAShh is entirely dependent on this community’s generosity and support to do anything possible to help those touched with cancer.

“Our services reflect the needs of those who seek our help. Our aim is to listen, to provide support and practical help to clients, their families and friends. We move forward with hope, kindness and determination to help our clients through cancer treatments.”

Distress Centre Halton is a non-profit charitable organization that provides telephone and online support to people 365 days of the year. Originally, volunteers answered the phone lines on Friday and Saturday nights only. As the demand for the service grew, the hours were extended to 24/7, 365 days of the year.

“We support people in our community to better cope with crisis, loneliness, and emotional stress. We listen. We care. In 2020 we responded to over 22,000 conversations.”

C.A.R.E. provides funding, volunteering, and events to aid at-risk and homeless youth ages 12-20 in Halton Hills, helping them live a happy, healthy, and active lifestyle. They focus on poverty relief, job training, mental health, addiction counseling, and life necessities.

“Together we can protect the youth so close to home. Our goal is to help youth be youth and have a successful transition into adulthood that is healthy and happy.”

The Townsend Smith Foundation is committed to building North Halton’s first hospice residence. There is no hospice residence in Acton, Georgetown, or Milton. They work with those who have been touched by hospice, who provide palliative care, or who wish there was a hospice available for their loved one, within North Halton.

“The need for palliative care will touch every family in our community at some point. The hospice will provide a calm, peaceful, home-like environment where individuals with life-limiting illness, as well as their families and loved ones, are supported through the resident’s final stages of life.”
