SPOKANE, Wash. --- On Saturday, John Bryant, owner of No-Li Brewhouse and the Spokane community reached their goal of raising $15,000 for a very brave mom.
The brewery and the Spokane community raised the money by selling cases of Big Juicy IPA for only $25 this weekend.
"We put together about 625 cases of beer, we basically donated it. And We'll sell for a really great value at 25 dollars a case and we will take every single, between 15,000 and 16,000 will go right to her family,” said Bryant.
Bryant said the money will be donated to Angel Fiorini, the mother who rescued her three children from a house fire.
Back in October, Fiorini woke up to find her Newman Lake house on fire. She quickly got two of her children outside. When she ran back inside to get her other child, she got badly burned.
Currently, she is still in the hospital recovering from third degree burns.
"Well I have three kids and a lot of people I work with know I have children and it kind of hits you at home,” Bryant commented.
People from all over Eastern Washington came together to help raise money for Fiorini.
"People from Cheney, Northern Idaho to Otis Orchards to South Hill, North Side,” said Bryant.
"It gives you a redeeming spirit that people will come together for a common cause and that's the best part of being in Spokane,” said Bryant. "We know that is just a little bit. She's got a long way to go. And hopefully she can sit up and see that there is a community in Spokane rooting for her,” Bryant later added.
No-Li raised a total of $15,750 in 10 hours by selling the cases of beer.
