Matt Wilson representing the NATF, together with Rob Morra on behalf of Beau's All Natural Brewing Co. were greeted with a warm welcome by the team at Red Door, who shared some incredibly moving stories of how the money will be put to use - such as helping a local family with 3 children who are to in transition and without home get back on their feet, and into a place of their own.
