Be on Tap for Project Starburst!

September 8th, 2014 Cranker's Brewery is hosting a Beer Tasting event to raise funds for Project Starburst. Tickets are $25 per person and include 5 Cranker's Specialty brews paired with 5 scrumptious appetizers. View our Facebook event page (click here) to see the menu. There are only 150 tickets. Tickets can be purchased through our PayPal account (link at the bottom). The event kicks off at 6:30pm. Everyone is encouraged to stick around after the tasting and have fun until 10:00pm. A live band will perform and a percentage of all the beer and food sales will be donated to Project Starburst. Even if you can't make the tasting, grab a group of friends and head over to have fun and help out an organization that feeds families in our community.


Project Starbust is hosting a fundrasier! Our goal is to collect enough quarters to reach a quarter mile. This equals approximately $4,000.00. All proceeds will help familes in the community. Collections will be taken from July 11th through August 30th. For more information call us or visit us on Facebook.


We can help you get your GED. Due to a new grant we can pay 50% of the testing fees so you can get you GED. Please stop in or call us for more information.

Donations may be made through our Paypal account.
