On Saturday, January 27th, 2024, Stickmen Brewing Company will host the 5th Annual Tualatin Winter Brew Festival to benefit the Tualatin High School PackBackers. The event is a major fundraiser for the Tualatin High School Athletic Booster Club with proceeds supporting TuHS sports and athletics, as well as dance, cheer and band. Whether you are craft brew connoisseur, simply a fan of high school sports and activities, or a high school supporter, you can bring the whole family and have a good time while helping to raise money for the teams, facilities and programs.
More than 1,200 Tualatin students participate in these programs and funding is always a concern, which is why the PackBackers exist. Sarah Mattecheck, current Packbacker Vice President says, “Our organization works with athletic director Ted Rose to fund as much as we can to keep students engaged in extracurricular activities. With so many needs and the diversity of activities at the high school it’s great to have this event to bring our community together to celebrate and support our students.”
The board is made up of a small army of parent volunteers whose fundraising efforts have amounted to thousands of dollars contributed each year. The Tualatin Winter Brew Festival, after cancelling in 2021 and 2022, is planning its fifth year, and their biggest fundraiser yet!
