These photos were taken Saturday evening at the Switzer Learning Center, in Torrance, where they held their 6th Annual Boots, Brews & BBQ fundraiser. The event featured unlimited pours of craft beer from seven craft breweries and cideries, wine, and an open bar. They also had tequila flights available for an additional fee. In addition to the ample liquid refreshments, there was plenty of barbecued meat available courtesy of Harry’s Oklahoma Style Smokehouse BBQ, as well some great tamales from Tortilla Cantina, new home of my annual South Bay Tap Takeover.
The western-themed, adults only event also featured a shooting range that had rifles or revolvers available, a few lawn games, gaming tables featuring blackjack, craps and roulette, and live and silent auctions.
The participating craft breweries included 2 Towns Ciderhouse, Absolution Brewing, Common Space Brewing, King Harbor Brewing, Strand Brewing, Stone Brewing, and homebrewer Noble Stallion Brewing. Noble Stallion is not just a homebrewer, the homebrewer happens to be Switzer Learning Center’s own Rebecca Foo, Ph.D., Executive Director of Switzer.
The beneficiary of the event, Switzer Learning Center, is a nonprofit special education school based in Torrance, with therapeutic services and a family services clinic serving students from 4th grade to 22 years of age who have moderate to severe learning disabilities, emotional issues, attention problems, and behavioral disorders.
This was another very fun and successful event, with attendees seemingly having as much fun as I did, and Switzer probably doing pretty well with their fundraising efforts. I know some people got some great deals with the auctions. I look forward to attending in 2020. Cheers!
