On December 6, 2018, students in Donald Vincent’s Persuasive Campaigns COM 460 class held a Beer Blast at the bar Hatches and Hops to benefit HEART animal shelter. The bar, located on Main Street in Buffalo, is the only bar in Buffalo to have hatching throwing, where trained professionals teach people how to throw an axe at a target. There was also a 50/50 and a basket raffle, where one item was a signed stick from Buffalo Sabers Jason Pominville. There was also craft beers, wines, and an array of interesting food choices, where proceeds went to HEART.
