Community raises $27,590 for Red Bar Employees at Grayton Beer Company

Red Bar fundraiser at Grayton Beer

Thousands of people went to Grayton Beer Company on Sunday, February 17, 2019 for an Employee Benefit Concert to show their support for The Red Bar and its 100+ employees.

The Red Bar Employee Benefit Concert raised a total of $27,590.56. 

Following news of the fire, local individuals and local businesses rallied their resources to plan The Red Bar Employee Benefit Concert at the Grayton Beer Company Taproom.

The five-hour event included the local bands such as:

  • Forrest Williams Band
  • TKO
  • The Wildlife Specials
  • Cadillac Willy
  • Guest performances by Fritz, Tanner Gray of The Graytones, Andi and Kevin Johnson, and more.

Area businesses including Shofar Stage Productions, South Walton Reef Association, Oyster City Brewing Company, Grayton Beer Company, Grayton Beer Brewpub, Cultural Arts Alliance, Proffitt PR, The Lewis Bear Company, AJ’s Grayton Beach, and Johnny on the Spot all stepped in to help make this happen.

“Our brothers and sisters at The Red Bar needed the community to step up and they did so in spades. The scale of this Benefit Concert would normally take months of planning. A very dedicated group pulled it off in less than a day. It was our goal to bridge the gap between the fire and The Red Bar employees finding employment. We made great strides on Sunday.”

Jamey Price, President & Founder of Grayton Beer Company
