Raft n’ Brew trips raise more than $5,800 for local nonprofits

Sun Country Tours raised nearly $6,000 for local nonprofits with its popular Raft n’ Brew whitewater rafting trips this season.

The award-winning river outfitter, Sun Country Tours, partnered with Deschutes Brewery, GoodLife Brewing, Cascade Lakes Brewing, Boneyard Beer, 10 Barrel Brewing and Three Creeks Brewing to provide weekly trips throughout the summer. The trips featured a Big Eddy Thriller whitewater rafting excursion followed by a complimentary beer tasting. Half of all proceeds were donated to various local non-profits including: the Boys and Girls Club of Bend, Tour des Chutes, Mt. Bachelor Sports Education Foundation, the Upper Deschutes Watershed Council, Central Oregon Trail Alliance, Ten Friends, Oregon Adaptive Sports, the Bend Paddle Trail Alliance and the Deschutes River Conservancy.

“We can’t thank Sun Country Tours enough for their ongoing support,” said Leslie Cogswell from Tour des Chutes, an annual cycling event that raises money for cancer research. “We are so grateful they chose us as a beneficiary of Raft n’ Brew. Tour des Chutes is about people joining together and having fun, and Sun Country Tours gives us all a good opportunity to experience that.”
