Mason's Brewing Crew Member Loses Home

Rochelle sadly lost her home on January 29, 2022 due to a fire that started from the wiring in the kitchen. Thankfully, neither Rochelle nor her daughter was home when this happened, but their beloved dog Indie was. He is currently receiving treatment because of smoke inhalation. Everyone is hopeful for his speedy and full recovery.

Fundraising for Rochelle

Mason’s Brewing Company will be hosting a fundraiser and silent auction, coming up on Wednesday, February 9th, from 5 PM -9 PM. This is a win/win because Mason's Brewing Company has amazing food and a great selection of brews. So, by all means, head over Wednesday and enjoy. There will also be a bottle drive through Damon’s Beverage where you can donate your bottles and cans. When you donate, Damon’s will match up to 20%, just make sure to mention Rochelle’s name when you get there.

There is also a GoFundMe page set up, with the goal of helping her alleviate the costs of replenishing belongings, relocating or rebuilding costs, and veterinarian bills.
