FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Raising a Glass, and Funds, for Veterans at the 5th Annual Red, White & Brew Craft Beer & Wine Festival

An Easterseals NH & Veterans Count Event to Support
New Hampshire Veterans and Their Families

September 14, 2021 -- Laconia, NH -- On Saturday, September 25, the Lakes Region chapter of Veterans Count will host its 5th Annual Red, White & Brew Craft Beer & Wine Festival at Funspot from 12 pm to 4 pm.

The event to benefit New Hampshire Veterans and their families draws hundreds of participants annually, and this year looks to be no exception. With beer and wine tastings on tap, the Bob Pratte Band live on stage, and a car show to check out, there will be plenty to see, eat, and do at the popular Weirs Beach destination.

“Thanks to our staff, volunteers, and sponsors, we’ve got an afternoon full of entertainment planned to honor and support service members,” said Jane Love, Volunteer Event Chair & Veterans Count-Lakes Region Chapter member. “We appreciate the many folks that join us for this event every year. Through their generosity, this event has raised $208,000 in its first four years to meet the needs of many New Hampshire veterans and families. Every ticket purchased makes a difference.”

Thank you to our major sponsors, including The Naswa Resort, FunSpot, Mix 94.1fm, The Weirs Times, South End Media, Stafford Oil, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Amoskeag Beverages, Pine State Trading, MS Walker, Perfecta Wines, Martignetti, Sal’s Pizza, and Bootleggers.
