In the wake of the severe flooding that devastated Ellicott City’s Main Street, the second such disaster in less than two years, local businesses are hosting benefits to help the town get back on its feet. Already, Hysteria Brewing Company in Columbia held an event Monday to raise money for relief efforts.

Here’s a roundup of benefits in the coming days and weeks, including one that is pitching in to help people in West Baltimore affected by the flooding. We’ll try to update the list as we see more. If you are planning an event and would like it included, please email [email protected]
