What's Brewing In Westlake

What's Brewing in Westlake was a happy hour fundraiser and networking event with live music entertainment by invitation only to the Westlake business professional community.  


Equity Trust Company and Sibling Revelry Brewing teamed up to co-sponsor the inaugural event to benefit the Westlake Senior and Community Services Department's Social Services programs for the most vulnerable in our community.  About 5% of our residents, almost 1,300 people, live in poverty.

This first event in 2018 hosted by Equity Trust Company at their headquarters helped to raise $1,800 for our social services efforts through ticket and fine wine pull sales. 


These funds can buy all of the meat for our holiday food basket distribution and would also pay approximately 6 overdue utility bills and keep lights and/or heat on for 6 families.
