Ales for Tails benefits pets and their people

| September 1, 2022 1:00 AM

SANDPOINT — Better Together Animal Alliance is partnering with Matchwood Brewing Company for a fundraiser to support cats and dogs in need.

Ales for Tails brings together local breweries and performers for good brews, live music, and a lot of fun. The event is Friday, Sept. 9 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Matchwood Brewing Company in Sandpoint.

While the event is free to attend, Matchwood is donating a portion of the proceeds to BTAA, and BTAA will host a raffle for an outdoors package featuring a four-person tent, fire pit, marshmallow roasting sticks, and two passes to bike the Hiawatha Trail. Tickets can be purchased at the BTAA animal care center or thrift store in Ponderay or at the event. Tickets cost $5 for one ticket or $20 for five tickets. Live music from Courtney and Company and lawn games will top off the event.

“We always appreciate the support and collaboration we receive from local businesses,” Joel Akins, BTAA Volunteer and Events Coordinator, said. “It’s a great opportunity for us to connect with fellow animal lovers and provide ways for the public to learn about what we do and give them a new avenue to support people and animals in our community.”
