Diamond Knot hosts fundraiser for rescued dogs
Diamond Knot has launched a month-long fundraiser in September for Oregon Dachshund Rescue and specifically Kramer, a young dachshund who is need of major surgeries to help him live a normal doggy life.
Call it Dogtoberfest. Diamond Knot Craft Brewing is pulling out all the stops to help Kramer with the help of Lilly, Diamond Knot's brewery dog, who just happens to be a dachshund, too.
When Diamond Knot founder Bob Maphet donated to Kramer's cause, he knew the company could do so much more to help. He and the team decided to match up to $500 in donations raised from this little weiner dog and the organization, Oregon Dachshund Rescue, which sees up to 3-5 rescues each day.
In addition to the month-long donation drive, Lilly has some fun planned over the weekend of Sept. 21-22.
There will be food and "Yappy Hour" drink specials all weekend long, and on Sept. 22, the Production Brewery & Taproom comes alive with dog costume and Frisbee toss contests, giveaways, hot dog feasts and beer specials.
Local celebrity judges have been invited and are looking forward to joining in the fun.
