Dynamic Lakewood Businesses Give Back

BEER ENGINE has been a cornerstone business in Lakewood since 2007. Partnering with Lakewood Charitable Assistance Corporation (LCAC), BEER ENGINE has raised more than $15,000 to help stuggling families and senior citizens in our community.

Each year, LCAC’s all volunteer board has to raise $25,000 to carry out its mission of providing food for the holidays and cleaning supplies in the spring to Lakewood residents in need. This year BEER ENGINE is celebrating its 12th anniversary by joining forces with Woodstock BBQ in hopes of raising a record donation for Lakewood Charitable Assistance Corporation. 

From March 1 - March 18, 2019 BEER ENGINE and Woodstock BBQ will invite patrons to purchase personalized taps, mugs, growlers, and kegs to paper the walls of each establishment. Prices vary from $1.00 to $100.00, with LCAC receiving 100% of the money raised during the campaign.

On March 18th  at 6:00pm, Mayor Summers will be at BEER ENGINE to accept a check from BE owner, Bob Wright and Woodstock BBQ’s owner, Robert Togliatti on behalf of LCAC and all the families who will benefit from the combined charity fundraiser.

There are hundreds of people who struggle to feed themselves and their families in Lakewood. With the community’s generous support, LCAC is able to provide food to more than 600 families over the holidays and deliver much appreciated cleaning supplies to 150 households each spring.

It’s been said that “it takes a village to raise a family.” Nowhere is this more true than right here in Lakewood. LCAC is a 100% volunteer organization. It works hand in hand with over 200 event volunteers and supporters from area schools, businesses organizations, and churches. It takes all of us working together to raise money, conduct food drives, and deliver food and basic supplies to our neighbors in need.

Please stop between March 1st and March 18th at BEER ENGINE - 15315 Madison Ave. and Woodstock BBQ -13362 Madison Ave. to paper their walls in support of Lakewood Charitable Assistance Corporation.
