The Treasure Coast Brewmasters Charitable Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to fundraising for local charities through craft beer focused events. We will carry out this mission by soliciting donations from local businesses for the operational expenses of hosting a beer festival. The net proceeds and ticket sales will constitute our charitable donations to the local charities we determine have the most need.
"On August 6th, 2011, I awakened to the reality of tragedy that so many other families have lived throughout our nation's history. My bigger-than-life brother, Aaron Carson Vaughn, had been killed in action.
KIA...those letters seemed insufficient to describe the fullness of their meaning.
Nevertheless, it was true.
As our family muddled through the next few months of this new life without Aaron, we had a strong desire to somehow add value to our great loss. We wanted to do something to remember him, something that would allow the legacy of all that he was to continue.
Aaron was a man’s man, but a child at heart. He always made everyone laugh and was constantly forcing us all to join in on his child-like shenanigans. We happily obliged. He was always up for an adventure and lived every day to the fullest. His love of God, family and country was unparalleled.
We chose to honor him by giving his kids and other children who have suffered such tremendous loss the opportunity to spend a little time living like Aaron: full of abandon, pure joy, and utter hilarity...even if only for a weekend at a time.
The support of our community in building this dream has been surreal. They took what seemed impossible and made it possible. Their hearts are full of love, honor, and respect for not only Aaron, but for all of those like him, who gave their tomorrows for our todays.
In everything we do, we seek first to bring glory to our Lord Jesus, and second to honor Aaron and his legacy."

Angler Action Foundation:
Angler Action is a growing army of anglers recording their fishing trip and catch data to benefit the future of gamefish. Our tools are developed through collaboration between research scientists and anglers.
Angler Action data fills a critical need in fishery management by collecting data on released as well as harvested fish. We collect information on fish relative sizes, numbers and locations that is only available from anglers recording their fishing trips.
Angler Action is a service project of the Snook & Gamefish Foundation, undertaken in partnership with Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, University of Florida researchers, and other partners. The current update of Angler Action's database, software and phone apps was made possible by a grant from National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
Who we are:
Since 1996, Molly’s House has provided a warm and caring environment for patients and families in a medical crisis. For over 20 years, Molly’s House has provided a home away from home to almost 22,000 people while they or a loved one were receiving medical treatment. Our Adopt a Family program subsidizes families who are unable to make a donation toward their accommodations. Molly’s House is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for our guests. We are staffed by volunteers and a night manager staff, a housekeeper, an operations manager, and a CEO.
Molly’s House is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. The house was built by the generosity of philanthropic businesses, foundations and individual donors. The community and our stakeholders have made it possible for us to continue to keep Molly’s Dream Alive by supporting our mission with contributions to our annual campaign (Adopt a Family program) our special events (Polo and Prêt á Manger) and helping us to spread the word about how our programs and services help those patients and families in a medical crisis. The suggested donation for guests at Molly’s House is $30 per night.
