Face to Face Oktoberfest Fundraiser Oct 4th
Thursday, 15 September 2016 10:36

Thank you to everyone who came out to Face to Face’s 1st annual Oktoberfest Fundraiser! There were 115 tickets sold!

Thanks also to the Rena Haus Trio, who donated their time and talents, and our host Urban Growler Brewing Company. Proceeds will be dedicated to bus tokens and bus cards for youth, removing barriers for youth to get to work or school, or access other resources. Thank you!

Everyone seemed to have such a good time, for a good cause, that we are already planning the 2nd Annual Oktoberfest Fundraiser in Fall 2017!

Lack of transportation is often a major obstacle for many of the youth we serve to get to work, school, appointments, or wherever they need to go. SafeZone provided tokens or bus cards over 18,000 times last year. On a winter night when the shelters are full, riding the bus all night may be the safest option for a young person to stay warm. An average Metro Transit bus fare is $2. The tax deductible portion of a full-priced ticket will pay for 10 bus rides.

Urban Growler Brewing Company is the first woman-owned and brewed microbrewery in Minnesota. The mission of UGBC is to “bring people together through beer.” The warm and welcoming UGBC taproom, kitchen and beer garden in St. Paul’s South St. Anthony neighborhood is a perfect setting for doing just that.

Rena Haus Trio – Singer/songwriter Rena Haus rolls folk music, blues, and jazz into unforgettable performances that are somehow always intimate no matter the venue. Her music is like the sound track of our common human experience, creating a personal connection with her audience. She draws listeners close with her unassuming talent and absolute sincerity. The trio is rounded out by Ed Petsche on electric guitar and brother Bob Haus on the fretless bass.
