04 Apr Georgia’s Healing House “Friend-Raiser” at Three Notch’d Brewery
October 22, 2015 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Three Notch’d Brewing Company
520 2nd St. SE
This event is to support a local non-profit, Georgia’s Friends, and their project, Georgia’s Healing House. Georgia’s Healing House provides housing and support for women ready to make lasting, life changes. This is a “friend-raising” event and the intention is to educate ourselves about this important community resource, and collect items that can help women in transition. Please consider bringing a donation of toiletries (soap, shampoo, etc), paper products (toilet paper, paper towels, etc) or non-perishable food items (rice, pasta, etc.) These items help women moving in to Georgia’s House get started. Three Notch’d Brewery will donate $1 of each beer sold during the event to the Georgia’s House project. Three Notch’d will also be releasing a new beer during the event…Pumperkin!
We hope to educate as many people as possible with this event so please bring guests, male and female. As a ladies-only group, the Brew Betties are proud to support this women-focused project but know a community working together can often make the biggest impact.
More about Georgia’s House….
Georgia’s Friends came together in 2006 after their friend, Georgia Barbour, died in a jail cell following a long struggle with alcoholism. They believed that Georgia would be alive if she had a safe house in which to recover and heal from her disease. They founded Georgia’s Friends Recovery House for Women, receiving non-profit (501.c.3) status in 2010. Their vision is to start a healing house for women to have a supportive living environment as they maintain sobriety and build a new life after incarceration or treatment. This year, 50 committed community folks, with support from Mental Health America of Charlottesville-Albemarle, formed a community council to launch Georgia’s Healing House. They are proud to report they opened their doors this September! A representative of Georgia’s House will be at the event to tell us more about their plans.
