Conmoto & Bold City Brewery Give to Harvest of Hope

This afternoon at 3:30 the good people from the Conmoto Art & Music Festival and our close friends at Bold City Brewery will be presenting a check for the money raised during the festival to representatives from Harvest of Hope.

Conmoto Art & Music Festival is Jacksonville's longest running annual music festival celebrating Jacksonville's culture by showcasing the city's indigenous talent in an event that raises money to help humans in the Jacksonville area. The 2010 Conmoto raised thousands of dollars for Harvest of Hope through ticket sales, T-Shirt sales, and sponsorships. Bold City Brewery was the title sponsor of the 2010 Conmoto Art & Music Festival.  Bold City is Jacksonville's beer. Crafted in Riverside and sold at restaurants and in stores all over town. The two teamed up to help Harvest of Hope, which is an organization that supports migrant farmworkers. The majority of the money raised at Conmoto will go to the Willie Harvey Fund, which helps Migrant Workers in St. Johns County. The rest of the money goes to the organization which operated out of Gainesville, Florida.

Great Job! The Conmoto 2011 will take place on November 19, 2011. Mark your calendars.
