This is the first of a few different raffles to come, but with the smoke-heavy air in Redwood City this morning choking our lungs, our minds were 100% focused on doing something ASAP. We're starting today with a very special beer raffle put together by our buyer Jim Boyce. I'm going to post his notes below:
We, along with many others, have been thinking nonstop about family, friends, colleagues, and everyone else being hit unbelievably hard by the fires in North Bay. Sonoma and Napa have been the backbone of K&L for decades, in both the wine and beer categories, so to see these lives upended so quickly has been heart breaking. It will take years for families and businesses to rebuild and help is very much needed. After talking about ways to help, we thought it would be a great idea to dig into our cellars to find some incredible bottles, set up a raffle, and donate 100% of the proceeds to organizations directly helping the affected areas. On the beer side, we have two different sets going up:
Raffle tickets are $10 each and each customer can buy unlimited tickets. The charity for these donations will be set up asap. Raffle tickets can be purchased through midnight next Tuesday (10/17), and the winner will be drawn Wednesday morning. (Winner will be charged a $.05 included in the purchase of a ticket). Pickup via Will Call to all three locations and shipping within CA ONLY. Thank you for helping!
