Join us at Creative Loafing’s 2nd Annual Moo & Brew Craft Beer and Burger Festival at the AvidXchange Music Factory on Saturday, April 16. The festival will offer samplings from over 30 local, regional, and national breweries as the Queen City’s best restaurants compete for the coveted title of “Creative Loafing’s Best Burger.”
Why is a Software Company Sponsoring a Craft Beer and Burger Festival?
The answer is pretty obvious, actually. We love beer, we love burgers, and we love this community. We’re in a unique position to help make a positive impact on the city of Charlotte and even though we’re a software company, we’re very much in the people business.
AvidXchange formed the AvidFoundation to make a difference. As our company continues to grow, it’s important that we support the communities where AvidXchange employees call home. AvidFoundation supports programs and sponsors events that enrich children’s lives and help them to become successful adults.
Last year, Creative Loafing’s Moo & Brew Festival raised over $8,000 to help Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina feed the hungry. This year, we want to double that number. By teaming up with Creative Loafing, Second Harvest, and all the other great sponsors that make this festival possible, we hope to raise awareness and help eliminate hunger.
The real question is, why wouldn’t we want to be involved?

They provide a regional distribution warehouse and branches that supply food and grocery items to charitable agencies that assist people in need. 18.4% of Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina’s service area population lives in poverty, including almost 221,000 children and seniors.
