Beer, sausages, music and brewery tours will be featured at the eighth annual Davis BeerFest on Saturday, June 2. Guests will be invited to taste more than 100 microbrews from 30-plus breweries.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will support Citizens Who Care, a local nonprofit agency offering social support and services to older adults and their family caregivers.

The BeerFest will run from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Sudwerk Restaurant and Brewery, 2001 Second St. in Davis. The admission price includes a commemorative tasting glass, grilled sausage sandwiches, Sudwerk brewery tours and live music performed by two bands, Tha Dirt Feelin’ and ZuhG.

Tickets are $35 in advance, $40 at the door, and $10 for designated drivers. For tickets, visit www.davisbeerfest.org, call (530) 758-3704, or visit Sudwerk or the Citizens Who Care office in the United Way building, 1017 Main St. in Woodland. All guests must be age 21 or over.

Free parking will be available in the Target store parking lot at 4601 Second St., and a free shuttle bus will be provided.

Citizens Who Care, headed by executive director Joanne Bell, seeks to improve the quality of life for the frail elderly of Yolo County and their family caregivers through social support programs and services. Trained, caring volunteers, with the support of professional staff members, provide these services.

CWC offers three kinds of social support programs and services:

* In-Home Respite Visiting Program provides family caregivers of older adults with a weekly break from caregiving. Companionship and social support are provided for both the older adult and the caregiver.

* Convalescent Hospital Visiting Program provides companionship and mental stimulation to socially isolated elderly residents. Volunteers of all ages are matched with residents. Some visiting volunteers bring their friendly, well-behaved pets to lift the spirits of residents.

* Time Off for Caregivers program offers site-based social respite (time off) activities at the Davis Senior Center on two Saturdays each month, giving caregivers a five-hour break each program day.

The program includes a healthy lunch and a variety of stimulating activities. CWC’s professional staff provide periodic individual assessments of the participants.
