Fundraising festival supporting Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe
Olympic Valley, Calif.- This summer, The Village at Squaw Valley will host the 18th annual Brews, Jazz and Funk Fest. The family-friendly weekend is filled with the melodic sounds of jazz tunes set in the European-inspired Village at Squaw Valley. Brews, Jazz and Funk Fest will take place Saturday, Aug. 10 and Sunday, Aug. 11 from 2 to 8 p.m. and there is a $10 entry donation each day.
Brews, Jazz and Funk Fest guests over the age of 21 can enjoy over 35 craft beers from different breweries throughout the weekend. Tickets for pints of beer will be on sale for $5 each. All proceeds from Brews, Jazz and Funk Fest will benefit the Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe, a longtime partner of The Village at Squaw Valley, dedicated to saving and improving the lives of pets through adoption, community spay/neuter and humane education programs. Last summer, this event raised $35,000 for the Humane Society.
“The Brews, Jazz and Funk Fest is a fun summer festival that pairs fantastic brews and great musicians together for an afternoon in the sun, all while bringing in important funds for the Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe,” said Caroline Ross, executive director for the Squaw Village Neighborhood Company. “This is one of the highlights of summer in Tahoe, in part because of the notable talent that comes from around the country to Squaw Valley to perform for locals and visitors.”
