Despite a Friday night storm, the tenth edition of Beau's Oktoberfest in Vankleek Hill attracted 17,000 who helped raise $94,323 for non-profit organizations, bringing the total raised in 10 years to $711,212.

"Our 10th edition of Oktoberfest had some exhilarating highs and some extreme-weather-related challenges," notes Beau's co-founder Steve Beauchesne. "We kept our guests safe during the storm and made the most of a difficult situation Friday, and on Saturday when the sky cleared we had an amazing time and did a lot of good. I'm looking forward to what the next 10 years of Oktoberfest will bring."
