LACONIA — The Veterans Count Lakes Region Chapter is hosting its fourth annual Red, White & Brew craft beer and wine festival on Saturday, Sept. 28, at Funspot.
This event, made possible by Service Credit Union, will take place from 1 to 4 p.m., with a special VIP hour from noon to 1 p.m., sponsored by Tito’s Handmade Vodka and featuring a Bloody Mary bar.
All proceeds benefit Veterans Count, the philanthropic arm of Easterseals Military & Veterans Services, which provides emergency financial assistance to service members, veterans and their families to help ensure their dignity, health, and financial and overall well-being.
Guests will be able to sample craft beer from 14 craft brewers and wine from 8 local brokers and a few private wineries. Food will be provided by Sal’s Pizza Laconia, Crescent City Kitchen, and Winni Wagon.
There will be a silent auction, raffles, a free car show for spectators, entertainment from The Bob Pratte Band, and vendor booths. Most importantly, military heroes will be honored throughout the day with tributes to each branch; and, with proof of military status, Funspot will be giving away goodies.
