Ozarks Beerfest Benefits Local Children

The event didn’t have any children running around the venue but Ozarks children were the big winners of the 10th annual Ozarks Beerfest.

All of the money raised is given to Big Brothers Big Sisters.

A poker tournament on Friday night kicked off the event before Saturday’s big beer tastings at the Springfield Expo Center.  In addition to the money raised by ticket sales, Beerfest also held a silent auction.

Big Brothers Big Sisters says they have close to 100 littles just waiting for a big.  Commitment can be a little as being a lunch buddy or hanging out for just an hour during the week.
