A celebration of HRWC and a toast to the brewers and restaurants that support Suds

September 10-October 31, 2020

Get Your Ticket Here!

Although we will miss raising a glass with you on the banks of the Huron River for our annual fundraiser, we still have so much to celebrate. We hope you will join our Suds for the River self-led tour and visit the brewers and restaurants that have supported Suds over the years.

When you purchase a Suds ticket to support HRWC, you will receive a passport to the Suds for the River Tour! Visit participating breweries and restaurants and get your passport stamped along the way. If you visit at least four participating locations by October 31, 2020, you could win cool prizes! Plus, your passport is your ticket to special discounts off brews and bites at participating locations. Alcohol purchase is not required.
