MARC BOLAND

CHAIRMAN

I was born and raised in California until I joined the  United States Air Force.  I learned a trade as an optometric technician.  I have been doing optically related work ever since and I'm a licensed optician in the State of Florida.   I am married with two boys.  My hobbies include reading, home brewing beer and meads. 

WHAT DOES BEING INVOLVED WITH BEERWORKS MEAN TO YOU?

I love the fact that we created a charity out of one of my passions, craft beer.  And that we were able to put on an a event and give back to the local community.  That we have grown and are now able to put on multiple events so that we can give even more to local charities.

MARK CARBONE

TREASURER / BOARD MEMBER

I have been involved in the 'beer world' since I was a little kid stealing sips of Ballantine Ale (the first American IPA by the way), from my dad's tin can of beer.  I have been a member of the Treasure Coast BrewMasters since the late nineteen hundreds, and a BJCP judge since 2006.  Presently I own Vine & Barley Stuart; the best 'Wine Tasting & Craft Beer Lounge' this side of the Rio Grande (but I'm a bit biased when it comes right down to it).

WHAT DOES BEING INVOLVED WITH BEERWORKS MEAN TO YOU?

We get to enjoy the fruits of our labor, and give back to our 'local' community at the same time.  How cool is THAT?!

MENDY SOLORZANO

River of Beers

I am married to a self-proclaimed "beer-geek" which is how I started getting involved in BeerWorks. I felt a sense of community when I heard about the charities and saw all the hard work from the board and volunteers. As for myself, I am an avid traveler and own a travel agency. I am a lover of animals and feel my best when I give to those that need it most.

WHAT DOES BEING INVOLVED WITH BEERWORKS MEAN TO YOU?

An ability to help our community.

We would like to thank one of our founding members, JOE GREENWALD, for his many years of dedication to BeerWorks Charitable Foundation.

Joe & his wife Linda are going to be enjoying their retirement traveling the world!
We are extremely jealous, but wish them Happy Travels! 

Thank you Joe!
