Fun and fundraising were the outcomes of an event on Saturday, March 16 at the Bemus Point Golf Course and Tap House. Proprietors Rachael and Bryce Steffen teamed up with Loud Performance Products and Five and 20 Spirits &Brewing to raise money for Chautauqua Rails to Trails.

The event, “Tapped Out Bike & Brew and Leprechaun Dash 5K,” featured a run at noon and biking at two. Afternoon music was provided by Jesse James Weston and evening entertainment was supplied by Ryan Buzzetto.

Chautauqua Rails to Trails expresses gratitude to the three aforementioned establishments for the funds incurred. CR2T faces daunting financial challenges in its efforts to repair many failing culverts, to meet myriad trail maintenance needs and to advance the establishment of a new Frewsburg area trail. The board welcomes the participation of new members, especially of supportive people in the Frewsburg/Kiantone area.
