Cloven Hoof Brewing Company Raises Funds for Hospice of the Western Reserve


For the second year, Ryan Sposito, owner of Cloven Hoof Brewing Company, 1308 Bridge St., hosted “Hoof It For Hospice,” a fundraising event benefiting Hospice of the Western Reserve’s patients and families in Ashtabula County. The event drew a full house, including members of the nonprofit agency’s Ashtabula team, other HWR staff members and loyal brewery customers. A limited-edition double New England style IPA, Ralphie’s Revenge, was tapped for the event and attendees were the first to be treated to the new brew.
Recently, the Cloven Hoof Brewing team presented a check for more than $4,700 raised at the event in gratitude for the care provided to family members. In addition, an anonymous customer at Harbor Perk Coffeehouse & Roasting Co.,1003 Bridge St., donated $1,000. The donation was matched by Ryan Sposito’s sister-in-law, Kelly, who runs the shop, bringing the grand total raised to more than $6,700.
“We are extremely grateful to the Sposito family, Cloven Hoof Brewing staff and community members for their generous support of our mission,” said Cathy Westcott, home care team leader of HWR’s Ashtabula office. “These funds raised in the community make it possible for us to provide special services not covered by insurance to improve the quality of life for our local patients and their families.”
