Raise a Glass & Cash – Weideman Family Fund

Featured Benefactor: On September 11, 2020, a dear friend of Great North experienced an unimaginable setback. After suffering a life-altering stroke at just 43-years old, Dave Weideman was stripped of basic motor skills and the joys of everyday life.

For Dave, that included craft beer most of all. To read about Dave’s journey and his inspiring road to recovery, click here.
