The Dunedin Craft Beer & Food Festival proves to be just the ticket!

OUSA Dunedin Craft Beer and Food Festival director Jason Schroeder handed over a hefty  cheque to Amy Ruthven, Fundraising Coordinator. 

After postponing the event earlier in the year, due to covid, the event finally took place at Dunedin's Forsyth Barr Stadium on Fri 28th & Sat 29th October. The popular event saw thousands of enthusiastic festival-goers attend eager to reconnect with friends. 

A total of $36,000 was donated by the public at the event, and was spilt between Otago Community Hospice and Orokonui Ecosanctuary, the chosen charities this year.

Special thank you and congratulations to OUSA CEO Debbie Downs, Festival Director Jason Schroeder and the whole events team for their incredibly successful event. Thank you also to Amanda Symon and her team at Orokonui, it was a pleasure to work along another deserving Otago charity.
