2021 Run & Ride Results and Hops for Housing Wrap Up

This year, both of Willis Dady Homeless Service’s annual fundraisers ended in October. Whether you joined us for a great race at Run & Ride or out on the town at our Hops for Housing Brewery Nights, know that we truly appreciate your support of Willis Dady through our annual fundraising events.


This year's Hops for Housing event was a 6-month long brewery crawl to your favorite local spots. From May 23rd through October 31st, participants in Hops for Housing 2021 could redeem 12 free pints at 12 local breweries, restaurants, or cideries. Thank you to so many of you who joined us at our 12 Hops for Housing Brewery Nights across the corridor from Big Grove in Iowa City, Sutliff Cider in Lisbon, or in Downtown Cedar Rapids at Clock House Brewing.

Hops for Housing 2021 raised more than $25,000 for Willis Dady Homeless Services to continue providing prevention, employment, housing, and shelter services to our community. Thank you so much for purchasing tickets, bringing your friends along, and learning a bit more about our services along the way. Stay tuned at our Facebook page as we begin to plan for next year's Hops for Housing!
