Australian Venue Co will be raising money in all venues nationally to assist those affected by the Queensland and NSW floods through ‘Beers for Mates’.
Until 31st March, $1 from schooners and $2 from pint sales of select beers purchased will be donated to the Red Cross Qld and NSW Floods Appeal.
The fundraising efforts will help the Red Cross to enable volunteers and staff at relief centres and outreach services, support people and communities in the hardest hit areas around Queensland and New South Wales to recover while building resilience to disasters and provide financial relief to flood-affected people.
With over 180 venues across Australia, it is hoped many thousands of dollars will be donated through the Beers for Mates campaign.
In Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia and Western Australia, donations will come from the sales of Furphy beer, while in Queensland and Northern Territory the fundraising will be through sales of XXXX Gold purchases.
“Australian Venue Co is proud to be able to do what it can to help those in need,” said Paul Waterson, CEO at Australian Venue Co. “We want to do our part to support those communities in need during this challenging time. We know our customers feel the same way, so this initiative gives them the opportunity raise vital funds while enjoying a beer at their local.”
The Beers for Mates fundraising will be across all Australian Venue Co pubs and bars nationwide until 31st March.
