Hi Everyone, My family and …
Hi Everyone,

My family and I want to thank you for your donation from the bottom of our hearts. Chris (and the entire Gerard family) is so fortunate to have the support of so many incredible people. With 1 day to go until our golf benefit tomorrow, we have received 291 donations and have raised over $38,000. Incredible.

I would be sending personal messages to each of you if I didn't have my own young family and small business absorbing most of my time. Please excuse the mass message, but know that we see each of your names as you donate; we cannot thank you enough for your generosity and support.

After getting out of the hospital a couple weeks ago Chris has made amazing progress, getting back to work and his home life. He still tires pretty easily and is working on a few things but he’s quickly getting back to normal. Though his recovery has been rapid lately (thankfully!) and we expect him to be back to 100% at some point, his steep medical bills are not going away. That is why you, and we, are helping him and his family.

We initially set a goal of $60,000+ in total fundraising by June 23, and after tomorrow’s event, we are still hoping to get there (or beyond...hopefully). To continue to help make this happen, please share this with everyone you know that would like to help Chris and his family get past these bills. Here is the direct link to donate: https://www.crowdrise.com/RaiseaPint-HelpChrisGerardandhisFamily

Thank you for your kindness and for keeping Chris in your thoughts and prayers. I hope you all are having a great weekend!

Thank you so much for helping support a local craft beer family in their time of need! We’re glad you’ve partnered with us to help them out. Because of your generosity and support, we’d like to give you a free Black Sail Brewing Company t-shirt. Once our first batch of shirts is ordered in a couple months, you’ll be the first to get yours because you’re awesome!

Please reply to this email and let us know what size shirt you’d like.

Hi Everyone,

My family and I want to thank you for your donation from the bottom of our hearts. Chris (and the entire Gerard family) is so fortunate to have the support of so many incredible people. With 19 days to go until our deadline of June 23, we have received 248 donations and have raised over $28,000. Incredible.

I would be sending personal messages to each of you if I didn't have my own young family and small business absorbing most of my time. Please excuse the mass message, but know that we see each of your names as you donate; we cannot thank you enough for your generosity and support.

After getting out of the hospital early last week, Chris has made incredible progress and is quickly getting back to a normal life. He was actually able to get back to brewing his first batch of beer since the accident today, and anyone who knows him well understands how important that is to him. Though his recovery has been rapid lately (thankfully!) and we expect him to be back to 100% at some point, his steep medical bills are not going away. That is why you, and we, are helping him and his family.

We have set a goal of $60,000+ by June 23, and at this rate, we hope to get there (or beyond...hopefully). To continue to help make this happen, please share this with everyone you know that would like to help Chris and his family get past these bills. Here is the direct link to donate: https://www.crowdrise.com/RaiseaPint-HelpChrisGerardandhisFamily

We have also set that date, June 23, for our "Raise a Pint for Chris" Benefit Golf Outing at Knollwood Country Club. Please join us for this event which will feature a round of 18 during the day with a dinner and silent auction to follow. Tickets are available for an individual, foursome, or dinner/auction only. Get all of the details here: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/raise-a-pint-for-chris-benefit-golf-outing-tickets-11745110943

Thank you for your kindness and for keeping Chris in your thoughts and prayers. I hope you all are having a great week!
