This fundraiser will help raise much-needed funds for

TAP-IN (Touch A Person In Need),

a non-profit  group of volunteers who act as a food pantry, collect donations of  clothes and toys for children in need and organize free rides to medical  appointments for senior citizens who require help in the Barrington,  East Providence, Warren and Bristol areas, as well as The Hopkins Center, a non-profit legal aid organization  whose mission is to represent the indigent to enforce their  constitutional rights to free speech, private property and economic  liberty.

Not only will this event raise funds for two great causes, it will feature some of Rhode Island’s premier breweries!

Cheers to Great Beers!
