On Saturday, Walkabout Brewery hosted an event supporting Every Child, an organization aiming to provide gifts for each of the 634 foster children in Jackson County.

To hit this goal, Every Child is on a mission to raise $52,000 before Dec. 15.

"The event is to raise funds for children in foster care," said Lynette Hasse, Executive Director of Every Child Jackson County. "We are working on getting each child a physical gift and four gift cards for local businesses."

During Saturday's event, which lasted from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m., Walkabout donated one dollar from every pint sold to the cause.

Bobbio's pizza was also sold. One hundred percent of those profits went towards Every Child.
