The temperatures hovered around 20° Tuesday night with winds gusting as high as 34 MPH while the crew and other volunteers continued Bouncing For Hams outside of Devils Backbone Brewing. We first told you about the planned event a few days ago. The goal of the 24 hour bounce is to raise enough money for 330 hams for The Nelson County Pantry will donate to needy families this Christmas. “We’re want to do something really special for the community for the holidays. We’re using this as an opportunity to raise money for needy families in the county,” Brian Coe, Assistant Manager at DBBC tells NCL. Brian was there Tuesday night bundled up to the max, jumping away as well!

The event runs through the night and all day until 6PM Tuesday evening. They are asking people to drop by and donate, volunteer to jump for a bit, or just buy something to eat on Tuesday. “Come out on December 14th and dine, 10% of our non-alcoholic revenue is going to be donated to the pantry,” Brian continues. There’s also a box at the front hostess station where people can simply drop in a donation.
