Join the CCOF Foundation for Thank You Thursday at Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing on March 15

Santa Cruz, California is a unique place. Nestled between redwood trees and a vast ocean coastline, those who have the privilege to live and work in Santa Cruz cherish its community. Although technically a city, Santa Cruz has a small-town vibe: local businessowners create lasting relationships with their patrons and give back wherever possible. One such local business, Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing (SCM Brew), likes to give back with an event called Thank You Thursday.
