I’m a Beer Hound and Lugnuts teamed up for the first ever Beerfest at the Ballpark on April 4th. For a first year festival we had a great turnout of over 2,500 people. We had 35 Michigan Breweries and over 100 beers that people were able to sample in the unique atmosphere of the Cooley Law Stadium. We were also able to raise a donation of $4,818.54 to a local Lansing charity the Old News Boys.
Paul Starr one of the organizers of Beerfest at the Ballpark had this to say, “Being a first time festival it was amazing that we were able to raise close to $5,000 and feels even better to help out a local Lansing charity such as the Old News Boys.”

Since the Old News Boys inception in 1924, their mission has never changed: provide shoes and boots to deserving schoolchildren throughout Greater Lansing. Old Newsboys' biggest fundraiser is a one-sale of a spoof newspaper, the Lansing Spoof Journal, which is hawked on the streets each December. Old Newsboys is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization.
