“This is a fun event that allows VMC’s loyal supporters a chance to sample beer from select breweries and enjoy good food and music for one low price” said Ginny Weatherstone, VMC CEO.  “There will also be a silent auction of wonderful prizes, valuable art objects, and other great items to bid on at the event.”


“I really appreciate the hard work of the staff and management at Brixx in helping to organize this fundraiser for VMC.  The effort to end and prevent homelessness requires the support of the entire community and it is great to see people from all across the city pitching in to help end homelessness,” Weatherstone added.
