Raised Grain Brewing Co.’s inaugural Guitar City Days, a celebration of beer and live music benefiting The Women and Girls Fund of Waukesha County (WGF), drew big crowds to the brewery Friday, June 14, and Saturday, June 15. A total of $6,021.00 will be donated to the WGF following this event.

Raised Grain donated $1 of every beer sold to the organization, which seeks to aid and enrich the lives of women and girls in the Waukesha community by providing financial grants that enable opportunities otherwise unavailable to them. Additional donations came from event sponsors Lallemand Brewing, a dry brewing yeast manufacturing company with offices worldwide, and Dental Associates, Wisconsin’s largest family-owned dental group practice with 14 dental clinics throughout the state. 

Following this event, Raised Grain and the WGF are announcing a multi-year Guitar City Days partnership. The WGF has goals to grow its endowment from $1m to $3m within the next three years so it can continue to increase its positive impact on the lives of women and girls in Waukesha County.

“The WGF has a fantastic mission. We are excited for the opportunity to help grow their endowment and to spread their message to a larger audience,” says Nick Reistad, owner of Raised Grain. “If our small contribution has a positive impact on even one life, that is an amazing accomplishment. We hope to grow Guitar City Days over the coming years to increase the amount we are able to contribute.”

Michelle DuBord, Executive Director of WGF says: “The Women and Girls Fund appreciate the opportunity to partner on this inaugural event and in the future. Raised Grain’s belief in our mission and financial support will help to strengthen our community by improving the quality of life for women and girls.”
