Fall sup­per

More than 20,000 fes­ti­val­go­ers helped Beau’s Brew­ery set a new record for fundrais­ing at the ninth an­nual Beau’s Ok­to­ber­fest in Van­kleek Hill.

A sum of $100,205 was col­lected for projects and char­i­ties, sur­pass­ing the $75,000 goal, and bring­ing the nine-year to­tal to $616,889. “This is amaz­ing!” says Beau’s co-founder Steve Beauch­esne. “This Ok­to­ber­fest was def­i­nitely warmer than we’re used to, and the spirit of gen­eros­ity was just as strong as the sun­shine. I love see­ing Van­kleek Hill come to life with such a vi­brant, wel­com­ing at­mos­phere ev­ery year we do this.” The United Way Char­ity Bike Ride took place again this year, raising more than $35,000 for an ini­tia­tive called “All That Kids Can Be.” Among the ben­e­fi­cia­ries are the Hawkes­bury and Dis­trict Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion and the Van­kleek Hill Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety, which will each re­ceive $10,000.
