The SCTCC Foundation was happy to bring back BrewLäsh, a fundraising event for student scholarships, on Wednesday, March 1.

SCTCC welcomed more than 250 people to BrewLäsh 2023, and the Foundation raised more than $45,000 for student scholarships and program equipment.

This year’s BrewLäsh saw a change in season and the bites. Due to conflicting events, BrewLäsh has moved to the springtime, and instead of hot dish tasting, the SCTCC Culinary students put together charcuterie boards with meats, cheeses, vegetables, dips, breads, and more. Each charcuterie board was paired with a brewery with different beer, cider, and wine tasting.

In addition to the food and beverage, there was a silent auction that included hand-made metal charcuterie boards etched by Welding students; SCTCC student club tabling to raise money for their clubs; and etched glasses for each participant made by Mechanical Design.

As in years past, the event was held in the Medium Heavy Truck lab, with the students working hard to clean the lab before the big event. The BrewLäsh committee worked hard and brought the event together in two months with help from alumni, volunteers, retires, sponsors, partners, and more.

“A deep and hearty thank you to [those] who made the return of BrewLäsh a success,” said Foundation Director Daniel Larson. “This was truly a campus-wide effort.”

The future of BrewLäsh will continue to evolve, but one thing is certain: it will continue to raise awareness of SCTCC in the community and raise money to make sure all students have access to an affordable education.
