Battle of the Brews – A Huge Success 
Published: Monday, September 2, 2019

The Leadership JC Class of 2019 hosted the 5th Annual Battle of the Brews, which was held on June 28th as a class project.  The event venue changed to the Capital Bluffs Event Center and included 24 brewers from across the state competing for overall Drinkers Choice Award as well as trophies in their class of either Home Brewer or Commercial Brewer.  Funds were also raised from a silent and live auction as well as other games and raffles.  Food was available from local food trucks and The Dave Baker Band played after the event.  With the help of this community, the class was able to raise $34,563.59 for three local charities who each received $11,500. 

The recipients of their fundraising efforts were Central Missouri Community Action, Safety Net, and Samaritan Center
