WACAI FUNdraiser at Sam Bond's Brewing Co AKA "The Foundry"


Join us for WACAI's upcoming FUNdraiser on November 4th from 6-10pm at Sam Bond's Brewing Co. AKA "The Foundry"! This awesome newish spot is located at 540 E. 8th Avenue off of Franklin Boulevard towards the UO campus!

Our FUNdraiser will feature live music and entertainment including, but not limited to acoustic jazz, a blue grass band, and WACAI's own performance group. We will have awesome door prizes as well as a stellar silent auction. In the silent auction, you'll get to bid on hand made artisan goods, massage creams and essential oils, bottles of wine, yoga classes, signature baskets of creatively themed goodies, and more! Plus, for every pint of beer you purchase during our FUNdraiser, Sam Bond's will donate $1 to WACAI! So, as you enjoy our exciting array of entertainment and place your silent auction bids, you'll support WACAI even more as you enjoy Sam Bond's delicious brews! Entrance to our FUNdraiser is FREE!

Sam Bond's Brewing Co. AKA "The Foundry" is a "10bbl brewhouse and tasting room." "Bbl" is beer code for barrel, and 10bbl indicates that Sam Bond's Brewing Co. produces their beer in 10-gallon batches. Each beer barrel contains 31 gallons of beer, or 248 pints. Think we can collectively buy a whole barrel throughout our FUNdraiser night next month? 

Former home of a fire hydrant and manhole manufacturing company called "Eugene Machine and Foundry Company", "The Foundry" now houses Sam Bond's Brewing Co. and still contains repurposed elements of the original structure after its renovation and remodel in 2014. We are thrilled to host our FUNdraiser in this historic building.

Through funds that come in through special events like our FUNdraiser, WACAI can expand its reach in our community and continue to provide incredible cultural arts education opportunities. We use community funding to offer After School Drum and Dance Programs free of charge to their families who might not be able to otherwise afford them. In addition, we use funding for Community Outreach Events and our Guinea Land Project campaign.

We look forward to seeing you at our FUNdraiser and we appreciate all that you do to support WACAI!
