All contributions are tax deductible.

Rare Earth Farms Food Truck will be onsite from 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm and Music Bingo starts at 7:30 pm.

House of Hops will be donating 10% of sales from drafts, merchandise, and beer to-go so you'll be able to support our collection drive and a local family owned business at the same time!
