North High Brewing and the Sedona Grace Foundation both came into being in 2011.
So it's only fitting the charity a Northwest Side couple started to help feed the pets of those who couldn't afford to do so would benefit from a fundraiser.
The event will run June 8-13 at the Pint Room, 4415 W. Dublin-Granville Road.
North High Brewing, which was launched six years ago by Ohio State University Fisher College of Business graduates Gavin Meyers and Tim Ward, will supply more than 15 beers, including some made special for the occasion, according to Ryan Brown, bar manager at the Pint Room.
Every purchase of those beers during the fundraiser, which will conclude with a five-course North High beer dinner Tuesday, June 13, will yield $1 for the Sedona Grace Foundation.
Dave and Jill Cottone named their nonprofit organization in memory of their beloved dog, Sedona. Through the foundation, they provide dog food, biscuits and cat food to 13 local food pantries, including the Mid-Ohio Foodbank and the Clintonville-Beechwold Community Resources Center.
Sedona was a shelter dog who was dropped off at the pound when she was 3 years old, the Cottones said. They said they couldn't imagine having to give up a beloved pet because they had to decide between feeding them or their family.
Brown said he has known the Cottones for a few years "and they are wonderful, wonderful people," so he decided to coordinate the event to benefit their organization. Brown approached several microbreweries about participating, he said.
"North High was by far the most excited," he said.
"I think it's not only the owners, but (also) the brewers were just as excited about it," said Kelsey Stief, brand manager for North High Brewing. "We really like supporting charities and helping out where we can."
Money derived from the event, including all proceeds from the June 13 beer dinner, will enable the Cottones to perhaps expand their donations to additional food pantries or increase the amount they provide, said Geoff Retz, vice president of the board for the nonprofit organization and a Northwest Side resident.
"It's something they're real excited for," Retz said.
"It's a nice way to raise awareness of the foundation," Brown said. "The baseline goal is to raise $2,000 this weekend. Obviously, we're looking to go way beyond that."
