“The Pub Crawl is all about fun, but it has also raised huge amounts of funds for our local charities, and it showcases Ferndale’s glittering downtown and many fine businesses,” says Craig Covey, who founded the event in 1996 and has managed the event since.
All funds raised through the Pub Crawl will benefit the Ferndale Police Auxiliary, FernCare, the Ferndale Community Foundation, and the Michigan AIDS Coalition. The Pub Crawl raises about $15,000 each year for these charities.
Tickets are $10 and can be purchased the night of the event at Boogie Fever from 6:30 to 9 p.m. or through volunteers in the downtown all night long. For information or to volunteer, contact Monica Mills at 248.545.1435,ext. 117 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
