Nevados, along with the charity Uphill Both Ways, were able to raise over $1,000 dollars in relief funds as well as organize supplies to be sent on a cargo plane to Nepal following the recent earthquake disaster that has devastated many areas of the country.

Uphill Both Ways organizer Nina Pritchard lives in Fernie and works at Nevados. She travels to Nepal annually to donate her time and care for those in need.

Pritchard will be heading back to Nepal this fall to help the Nepalese rebuild their lives after the recent earthquakes.

Nevados held a fundraiser May 7 and donated the proceeds from the night to Uphill Both Ways so they can send support to these mountain towns in need on the other side of the globe.

It was an amazingly successful event and Nevados is very proud and thankful to all the community members that came out to have a pint for Nepal.
