Highland Brewing Co.'s "Give Back with Gaelic" Campaign Raises 25K for Hospitality

Highland Brewing Co. in Asheville, North Carolina has announced it has raised $25,000 for 12 local non-profits in the hospitality community. Full details are below.

 “Hospitality at its core is a showing of generosity and goodwill,” said Highland Marketing Director, Julie Funke. “This campaign honored those fundamentals, and we are proud to help take care of our own when they need it most.”

Funds raised will be divided based on Gaelic sales in each locality between the following organizations:  

·       NC Restaurant Workers Relief Fund (NC)

·       United Way Central Carolinas (NC)

·       Second Harvest Food Bank (NC)

·       Food Bank of Central & Eastern NC (NC)

       Loaves and Fishes (SC)

·       United Way Piedmont (SC)

·       The Lot Project (SC)

·       South Carolina Restaurant and Lodging Association (SC)

·       Virginia Restaurant and Hospitality Relief Fund (VA)

·       TN Action for Hospitality (TN)

·       Giving Kitchen (GA)

·       CORE (FL)

Highland will present the funds to the non-profit organizations the week of Dec. 20. While the Give Back with Gaelic campaign packaging will switch back to Gaelic’s original packaging after the close of the campaign, the brewery’s commitment to the community and the ideals of hospitality remains a year-round priority.
