Blessings in a Backpack SWFL
is partnering with Millennial Brewing Co. to host ‘Brews for Blessings,’ a family-friendly event that will take place from 3-7:30 p.m. on Feb. 27 at the brewery in Fort Myers. Blessings in a Backpack SWFL invites local businesses to participate as event sponsors. Due to various circumstances, including COVID-19, local school meal programs have seen the need for weekend meals increase, while funding and donations have declined. To combat this, ‘Brews for Blessings’ will be held to increase community awareness, raise funds, and have fun. The free event was created for families with young kids and will feature a special children’s area with a bounce house, face painting, games, and a kid-friendly food truck serving snow cones. Adults will find a large selection of brews, more food trucks, a silent auction, and live entertainment featuring Electric Lipstick. Sponsors are greatly needed for this event. For more information, contact Cecilia St. Arnold at 239-410-9592 or email@example.com. All monies received go directly to provide meals for food-insecure kids.
