March Fundraiser at Oklawaha Brewing

March Greenway Fundraiser With Fun Kick-Off Party and Other FREE Events

Raise a pint for us at Oklawaha Brewing, 147 First Ave E, Hendersonville. During the entire month of March, Friends of the Oklawaha Greenway will get a portion of every beer sale. As the designated organization of the month, Oklawaha Brewing generously donates a portion of their profits. Money raised will be used for things like buying plants for the memorial garden, creating signage for the new bird trail, and paying for our domain name and website. No charge for these events.
Also check the News/Events page for media coverage and updates.
