Craft Brewery’s Feast of Saint Arnold Raises $106,000 for IBD Center at Texas Children’s Hospital
The oldest craft brewery in Texas, Houston-based Saint Arnold Brewing Co., reported that its 2016 Feast of Saint Arnold raised $106,000 for the Texas Children's Hospital Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Center. The funding will be used to support research into several gastrointestinal (GI) autoimmune disorders, such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, which together are estimated to affect approximately 1.6 million Americans. A portion of the funds raised will be used to cover the operating costs of the Texas Children's Camp Survived It All for pediatric GI patients who otherwise would be unable to afford to go. Located in Houston, the Texas Children's Hospital is a not-for-profit institution consistently ranked among the top children's hospitals in America. The Texas Children's Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center provides comprehensive, multidisciplinary diagnosis and treatment of pediatric IBD patients. According to the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America, there may be as many as 80,000 children in the U.S. with IBD. Brock Wagner, Saint Arnold Brewing Company's founder and brewmaster, serves as president of the Houston Leadership Board of the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America and has personally made a 10-year, $250,000 commitment to funding research at the Texas Children's IBD Center.
