Big Beach BreweryMarch 8, 2017 - Gulf Shores, AL (GSA) - This Saturday, March 11th, Big Beach Brewing Company will be hosting a fundraiser in support of the GSHS marching band students that were injured during the tragedy on Mardi Gras Day.
 
As many of us know, Fat Tuesday on the Alabama beaches wasn’t the usual light-hearted occasion filled with costumes, beads, debauchery, and way too many moon pies. It took a turn for the worse before the parades even started rolling when some of our own were injured in a terrible accident.
 
Big Beach wanted to do their part in supporting the community, too. The local brewery will host a day concert benefiting recovery efforts for the injured GSHS band members. John Hart Duo, which includes previous GSHS marching band member Adam Cooper, will play from 1pm-4pm at the brewery.
 
$1 from all pints sold during this time will be donated to the efforts focused on recuperating instruments for the students. Folks of all ages are encouraged to join in this Saturday at the Big Beach taproom.
