Festival Park (2911 E. Robinson St., Orlando, Florida), was the site for Pints for Pulse. Tickets were $50. Yo u could sample beers from just about every craft brewery imaginable while helping raise money for the OneOrlando fund. The event's tag line was... beer | art | music | you.
This craft beer community event raised money to help the pulse nightclub victims. Over eighty breweries, food trucks, food tents, burlesque shows, drag shows, and many more amazing and wonderful things - all to help raise funds for those affected by the pulse night club tragedy. This fiery burlesque performer swallowed fire for the cause.
All proceeds from this event will go to OneOrlando. I've heard the funds from OneOrlando will not be distributed until November. For those who are struggling now there is little peace. Survivors of the Pulse nightclub shootings will have a little more leeway to qualify for a share of the millions of dollars raised by the OneOrlando Fund, its board of directors decided late Thursday. Forms should be online at OneOrlando.org by midday Friday and must be submitted with documentation by Sept. 12.
The money will go only to four groups: the families of the dead, survivors who were hospitalized, survivors who sought outpatient medical treatment, and those who were present in the club when the shootings began but not physically injured.
Families of the dead will receive the most; the share that goes to each subsequent group will be decided next month.
Peace, Love, Pulse!
