Camp Casey Beer Fest to takeover Royal Oak Farmers Market The first-time event gathers more than 70 local, regional, national and international brews for patrons to sample in a festive atmosphere.  The event is made possible by the generous sponsorships of Carhartt, Garden Fresh Gourmet, Real Detroit Weekly, Suburban Buick GMC, and Westborn Market.

Tickets are $40 and available at or Westborn Market (27659 Woodward Avenue) in Berkley.  The event is open to people ages 21 and over (proper ID required). 100% of ticket sales benefit Camp Casey, a horseback riding program for kids with cancer in Michigan.

“We were the charity recipient of the winter beer fest, held at the Royal Oak Music Theater, this past January and couldn’t believe what a huge success it was,” said Molly Reeser, executive director of Camp Casey.  “When we were given the opportunity to partner in a larger way for Summer Beer Fest, we jumped at the chance! We know this is going to become a can’t-miss staple on people’s summer schedule.”

Camp Casey, a 501c3 nonprofit organization founded in 2003, offers three unique programs to 
children with cancer and their families.  Cowboy Camp Outs are overnight mini-vacations at dude ranches in Michigan; Horsey House Calls bring a horse to the doorstep of kids too ill to attend an overnight retreat; Outlaw Outings provide family-oriented activities, like attending professional sports games, without the expense or hassle of planning.  All of Camp Casey’s programs are free for families facing a pediatric cancer diagnosis.
