Rally for the Roots

A group of current and former Common Roots Brewing Company employees came together quickly after the devastating  fire on Monday, March 25, 2019, at Common Roots to organize two events  — Rally for the Roots North and Rally for the Roots South — to raise money to go toward covering what their insurance doesn’t cover as well as help the employees affected by the fire.

The Rally for the Roots North at The Queensbury Hotel on Sunday, April 7, has SOLD OUT!

You can still go to the after party at Craft on 9, though! You can also still make a donation via the eventbrite listing.

(There are also some other events featuring Common Roots in Glens Falls this weekend, including the 10th Annual Glens Falls Brewfest on Saturday, April 6 and Taps & Apps on Friday, April 5 at Seasoned.)

While Rally for the Roots North is sold out, there are still tickets available for Rally for the Roots South on Friday, April 12!

Adult admission is $25 and includes two beer tickets! DD tickets are available for just $10.

Here’s a description of the event:

“Enjoy raffle & beer tickets with admission, as well a DJ, giveaways, and raffle baskets. Food options are a la carte and a portion of food sales will also be donated to the cause.

There will be an option to purchase more beer tickets inside, and the ever-rotating draft list is sure to be epic.

We will also have a ‘beer pull’ where each ticket gets you an amazing bottle of beer to take home.

After all the fun at the Takk House, we head right downstairs to the Franklin Ally Social Club to continue the party from 9-12. Enjoy exclusive beers, music, and a shuffleboard tournament with all the proceeds going to help the cause.”

According to the eventbrite listing:

“All funds raised will go to help those employees affected by the fire, and to close gaps for things insurance does not cover. All events have been vetted and approved by Common Roots Brewing Company, although this group does is not affiliated with Common Roots Brewing Company or any other entities. We have not secured 501c3 status. Any donations made are not tax deductible at this time.”

There are other ways you can help, too. Here’s a link to a Go Fund Me page, which has a goal of $50,000.

Here’s an update from March 29 from the GoFundMe page:

*UPDATE 3-29-19* We reached our initial fundraising goal of $10,000 and are blown away by the support from our community.  THANK YOU to everyone who has donated so far.  While we are still figuring out many details,  we’ve updated our campaign goal to reflect the growing need and interest in supporting Common Roots.  We hope to have more information to share with our friends and supporters very soon.

Local businesses are also donating portions of their sales to Common Roots.
