  • Downtown Milford, Inc., recently announced its success at Dogfish Head Craft Brewery’s Beer & Benevolence fundraiser at Dogfish Head Brewing & Eats in Rehoboth Beach in April ─ earning it an additional $500 from the event’s proceeds and an extra $1,000 in grant money, all for the Art on the Riverwalk Tour Project.
    “We' couldn't have achieved this much-appreciated money for our ART Project without our tireless volunteers, supporters and well-wishers,” said Lee Nelson, executive director for DMI. “It was a wonderful evening, thanks to all who came out to support us and also to Jason Beale for providing great music.”
    At the beginning of the year, it was announced that Dogfish Head Brewery awarded three grants for $3,000 in the areas of Community, Arts and Environment to non-profit organizations in Sussex County. DMI received the Arts award for its ART Project.
    In addition, Dogfish Head hosted an evening of Beer & Benevolence for each non-profit organization. Ten percent of the evening’s proceeds were given to each organization, and the non-profit that brought in the most income was eligible for an additional $1,000. DMI outshined the other two non-profits during its night of Beer & Benevolence on April 16.
    DMI’s proceeds from the event will benefit its ART Project, which is slated to permanently display 18 sculptures modeled after Milford’s classic Augusta yacht throughout downtown Milford by the end of next summer. There are currently six sculptures on display in the ART Project, with six additional creations expected by early June.
