Buy a Raffle Ticket, WIN A ONE-OF-A-KIND PIN DROP, Conserve the

Verde River.

Two Arizona businesses, THAT Brewery and Pin Drop Travel Trailers, have

teamed up to help preserve the Verde River.

Verde Valley, Arizona - Two northern Arizona businesses, THAT Brewery and Pin Drop

Travel Trailers, are collaborating on a project to raise awareness around Verde River

conservation and to promote river sustainability. Both businesses are already champi-

ons of Arizona’s natural resource stewardship in a variety of ways. Furthering their efforts

forts, the business pair will be raffling off a one-of-a-kind Pin Drop Travel Trailer Road

Runner model highlighting THAT Brewery’s signature Strawberry Blonde Ale. All net

profits will be donated to Friends of the Verde River.

“We are excited to partner with Pin Drop Travel Trailers to benefit Friends of the Verde

River,” said Tamara Morken, co-owner of THAT. “We love everything outdoors so the

Verde River is near and dear to us. THAT Strawberry Blonde is a great beer for outdoor

gatherings, and will be a great feature ale for this effort.”

How It Works

Buy a raffle ticket, and be entered to win the ultimate adventure package including a

fully loaded Pin Drop Travel Trailer Road Runner model, specially wrapped with THAT

Strawberry Blonde iconic image, and additional adventure gear and accessories in-

cluding a Canyon Cooler fully stocked with THAT Beer. The trailer and total adventure

package is valued at ~$32,000. Only 400 tickets will be sold at $100 each. The winning

raffle ticket will be selected at the 13th Annual Strong Beer Festival in February 2023 or

when all 400 tickets have been sold.

Proceeds to Benefit Friends of the Verde

All net proceeds from the adventure package raffle will be awarded to the Friends of

the Verde River, a registered 501c3 non profit organization. Friends of the Verde River

focuses on restoring habitat, sustaining river flows, and building supportive communi-

ties. They proactively engage in a combination of "boots-on-the-ground” projects and

policy solutions guided by sound conservation principles.

“Friends of the Verde River is honored to be working with these two fine businesses,”

said Nancy Steele, Executive Director of Friends of the Verde River. “Their commitment

to the work we do here at Friends is truly gratifying.”

Being one of the last free flowing rivers in Arizona, sustaining the Verde River is critical

for the region and the state of Arizona. Friends of the Verde River will be dedicating the

funds raised to help keep the river clean and flowing, to increasing healthy habitat for

wildlife, and to connecting communities to the Verde River.

“Having grown up on the East Verde near Payson and now raising my daughters on the

Verde River in Cottonwood, it is important to me that this free flowing stream is pro-

tected for generations,” said Tim Elinski, founder and owner of Pin Drop Travel Trailers.

“We have built sustainability into Pin Drop’s core values and into our business model

from day one, so this raffle is a perfect fit to broaden our reach in this space.”

Trailer Road Runner Model including the branded trestle span roof rack and ARB
