Beer by the Pier presented by Darwin Properties Ltd. is back on June 15, 2024

Family Services of the North Shore is thrilled to welcome back Beer by the Pier!

Beer by the Pier is back with a splash on Saturday, June 15 from 6:00-10:00pm the Pipe Shop Venue at the Shipyards. We are excited to connect with our community, friends, and neighbours, to come together to sip, snack, mingle, and most importantly, raise funds to support those in our community that need access to our critical services.  This year proceeds from Beer by the Pier directly supported children and youth in desperate need of mental health support, our goal is to ensure young people in our community have access to our counselling services. If you would like to make a donation and support children and youth in our community, please click here.

Beer by the Pier has been a signature summer event since it started in 2015, and is a highlight for the Agency and our supporters. This year we are excited to continue this tradition and celebrate coming back together as a community for a community! Bring your friends, family, and colleagues for a spirited evening featuring local craft breweries, delicious wine, amazing food, a silent auction, and live music – all while raising money to support vulnerable children and youth on the North Shore.

Keep up with the latest event updates on the Beer by the Pier Instagram feed.
