Fort Myers Brewing Company is hosting a community fundraiser at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 15 to benefit the family of the late Adyn Pickett, a Cape Coral boy who recently passed after a five-year battle with cancer.
The #AdynStrong Fundraiser will feature food trucks, drinks, live music and a silent auction, with a goal of raising money to help the Pickett family cover medical bills and funeral expenses. Food trucks Doggone Organic, King’s Tacos & Burritos and Mobstah Lobstah will be on-site throughout the day and live music by High Tide will begin at 7 p.m. Additional food trucks and music may be announced.
In addition to a silent auction featuring dozens of items, Fort Myers Brewing is also raffling off five Adyn Strong six-packs, a German Pilsner brewed in Adyn’s honor. Donations of $20 are requested for a raffle ticket, and one winner will be selected per six-pack. Tickets can be purchased at the taproom or online here. Winners will be announced during the event on Saturday and contacted for pickup at the taproom.
All proceeds from the event will go directly to the Pickett family.
“Adyn touched the lives of so many people in our community in immeasurable ways,” said Jen Whyte, co-owner of Fort Myers Brewing Company. “We ask the community to join us in helping to alleviate some of the financial burden for the Pickett family as they navigate the grief of Adyn’s passing.”
The #AdynStrong Fundraiser runs from 4 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 15 at Fort Myers Brewing Company, 12811 Commerce Lakes Drive, Suite 28, in Fort Myers. For latest information, please visit Facebook.com/FMBrew or call 239-313-6576.
