Craft Beer Industry Rallies to Raise Funds For Wounded Warriors Project
LINDENHURST, NY. May 4, 2007 — On May 19, 2007 the biggest names in the craft beer industry will host a tasting event at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, NY to raise funds for the Wounded Warrior Project. The event will be produced by Starfish Junction Productions and sponsored by WBAB 102.3 FM.
The Wounded Warrior Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting the newest generation of severely injured service men and women was founded on the principle that veterans are our nation's greatest citizens. It seeks to assist those men and women of our armed forces who have been severely injured during the conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other locations around the world.
More than 50 craft beer industry leaders including Brooklyn Brewery, Blue Point, Southampton, Stone, Dogfish Head, Crop Circle, and Sam Adams will be on hand to educate attendees about the craft beer industry and offer a sample of their specialty brews.
A food drive will be conducted at the event to assist Long Island Cares with their mission to end hunger on Long Island.
Attendees who bring a non-perishable food donation to the event will receive a free raffle ticket for one of many wonderful prizes.
The 60,000 square foot auditorium of Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum will hold more than 50 different craft brewers from across the United States. The event will have two sessions: 12-4pm and 6-10pm. A limited number of tickets will be sold (2,500 per session maximum) and can be purchased at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum box office or through Ticketmaster for $45 each. Designated driver tickets are also available at the box office on the day of the event for $10 each. No one under 21 will be admitted and photo ID is required for entry.
This event is sanctioned by the New York State Brewers Association.
