BIGFORK — Bigfork Innovations Group (BIG) raised $10,000 in 2020 and has dispersed that money to different groups in the community.

The group was able to raise the money through their annual Bigfork Brewfest Event last March before COVID-19 shut down the state.

The group has donated the funds to various groups, such as $4,000 for a scoreboard at Carlyle Johnson Park, and $2,000 for the North Shore Nordic Club.

BIG President Dane Hollinger says that the group tries to donate funds to groups who do not often get the support they need to function.

“We actually tried to reach out to some organizations in the community that kind of get overlooked when it comes to giving," said Hollinger.

The group hopes to still have their annual Bigfork Brewfest in March this year. Click here to learn more about Bigfork Innovations Group.
