StillFire Brewing is giving patrons a chance to win big while also helping to give back to the community. Since August, the local brewery has been hosting a Queen of Hearts 50/50 raffle with all proceeds being donated to two local charities: Cooper’s Crew and The Phoenix Community of Suwanee.
Cooper’s Crew is a nonprofit that was founded in honor of Cooper O’Brien, a North Gwinnett Middle School student who lost his battle to Clear Cell Sarcoma at the young age of 14. Today, his legacy lives on through the Cooper’s Crew Fund and the Cooper O’Brien Scholarship Fund. The Cooper’s Crew Fund provides funding for research and development to help find a cure for childhood cancer. Cooper’s Crew has collaborated with CURE Childhood cancer to fund research projects specific to Sarcoma cancers. The Cooper O’Brien Scholarship Fund grants scholarships to graduating North Gwinnett High School seniors who have overcome unique challenges and adversities.
The Phoenix Community of Suwanee is an affiliation of The Phoenix Community of Atlanta, a family of disciples who seek to help bring relief to those who need assistance in the City of Suwanee and beyond. 100% of their proceeds go to help organizations that provide homes for single mothers and their children, addiction recovery, prison support, monthly food acquisition, and long term recovery for childhood abuse victims.
So How Does it Work?
The Queen of Hearts Game Board is on display in the taproom at StillFire Brewing with 54 randomly placed cards appearing face down on the board. Each card is numbered on the backside, 1-54 (2 Jokers are included). The goal is to find the Queen of Hearts. $2 tickets are being sold at the brewery one week at a time with purchasers choosing a number from all of the cards left on the board. When a ticket is drawn weekly, the card on the board with the number on the ticket will be peeled back revealing the face of that card. If it is the Queen of Hearts, the game is over and the owner of the raffle ticket wins half the pot. If a different card is shown, the pot grows and players get another chance the following week! Drawings are taking place every Tuesday night at 8pm, and tickets are sold right up to the drawing. For more information visit stillfirebrewing.com/queen-of-hearts.
