I know I’ve touched on this topic before, and I will brush on it again. Food and drink have the power to do more than entertain our taste buds. Beer and wine lovers have the opportunity to use their love of drinks and leverage it to help out a good cause. This Friday, Muse Event Center hosts “Raise a Glass-A Toast to PACER,” which is a parent training and information center for families of children and youth with disabilities.

 

Local favorites will include Summit Brewing Co., Surly Brewing Co., Burning Brothers, Insight Brewing, Milk & Honey Ciders, The Freehouse and Chankaska Creek Ranch & Winery will greet you with samples once you pick up your signature tasting glass. Tasty hors d’oeuvres await so you can also sample on a full stomach.  

 

“This is our third Raise A Glass, and from the beginning, we’ve tried to invite a variety of breweries and wineries to participate,” Jenna Hanson, Publications Coordinator of PACER said.

 

That variety includes a gluten-free beer from Burning Brothers, selections from a local cidery and several Minnesota wines.

 

“Several of the breweries also attend because they believe in PACER’s mission: to expand opportunities and enhance the lives of children with disabilities,” Hanson said.

 

Throw in some live music, fun professionals and prizes, and you are set for an exciting Friday night. Proceeds will support PACER’s Simon Technology Center, which strives to make assistive technology more accessible to children with disabilities, along with PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, which works to actively lead social change to the belief that bullying is not an accepted childhood rite of passage.
