Edit – She won! Yay! Congratulations to Melissa and thank you to everyone that voted to help out one of your own in the craft beer community.
Okay, here’s the background: Squaremouth is a travel insurance company based in St. Petersburg, FL. Basically, if you want to insure future travel, they can apparently do it all.
They have also been running a Thank You campaign to promote service industry employees in and around St. Pete. It involved visits to plenty of service locations (hotels, restaurants, etc.) in the area, saw who gave them the absolute best customer service (anonymously, of course), and presented the top 20 with $1,000.
One of those 20 people was Melissa Wolf from 3 Daughters Brewing.
A quick word about Melissa – She’s currently in the hospital. She has been quite sick for some time, has gone through 6 surgeries in the past two years, and is suffering from the complications of the latest surgery. And, according to co-owner Leigh Harting, Melissa is “one of the most caring, thoughtful people I’ve known in a long time.”
Is there something you can do to help this Florida brewery employee and her daughter out? Funny you should ask…
The contest for Squaremouth isn’t over. Melissa, and the other 19 recipients, have been entered to win Squaremouth’s $10,000 grand prize. Part of the decision as to who wins that prize is internet voting. All you have to do is go here, read Melissa’s story, and click the friendly little button marked “vote now” near the top of the page.
And thank you for supporting the people at your friendly neighborhood brewery.
