Nelson County, Virginia

We first told you about Bouncing For Hams at Devils Backbone Brewing back in November of 2010. For the 1st event it was brutal. Temps were down in the 20’s with wind chills of 0°. Brrrrrrrrrrrr! Not this year, and not hams this time around! Temps on Monday hit a very comfortable mid 70’s. The crew and some customers of DBBC stopped by to jump for awhile to raising money for The Nelson County Pantry. The bouncing started at 6AM Monday and goes for a solid 24 hours until 6AM Tuesday. Roughly each 11 dollars raised will buy a turkey for someone this holiday season.

“We’ve already raised almost as much money as we did for the entire event last year. We’ve been taking donations for the past month here in the restaurant before the bouncing actually started,” said Brian Coe with DBBC. Last year the group raised $2100.00 for the Nelson County Pantry.
