It's now a Brews for Blessings family-fun block party at Millennial Brewing

EntSun News/10865341
FORT MYERS, Fla. - EntSun -- Blessings in a Backpack SWFL's inaugural 'Brews for Blessings' is garnering tremendous support and excitement from the community. Because of the overwhelming interest in this event hosted at Millennial Brewing Company, Royal Palm Ave. near the family-friendly brewery will be closed on Saturday, Feb. 27, from 3:00 – 7:30 p.m.

The street closure will provide extra space to ensure a socially-distanced, safe event for everyone. Attendees are encouraged to wear masks or face coverings, observe social distancing guidelines, and bring their own chairs to enjoy the outdoor fun while supporting a valued nonprofit.

This 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 the Sno-Ball Pelican truck serving snow cones. The Lee County Sheriff's Office will offer fingerprinting and deputy badges, and will have a squad car on site for the kids to check out.

Adults will find a large selection of brews, food trucks, a silent auction, and live entertainment featuring local favorite Electric Lipstick. This high-energy, female-fronted band plays rock, dance, and funk and guarantees to leave attendees electrified.

In addition to offering food and fun, 'Brews for Blessings' is designed to help educate young families in our community about Blessings in a Backpack SWFL and allow them an opportunity to help feed a child for a school year. A donation of only $115 will provide meals for 36 weekends for one school-age child. 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 serve to increase community awareness, raise funds and have fun.

Sponsors for the event include: Title Sponsor Premiere Plus Realty; Barraco & Associates; Rohrman Electric; Youngquist Brothers, Neubert Construction Services, Sawyer Smith, Jones, Haber & Rollings; Colonial Roofing; D.R. Horton; TM Strategic Consulting; Lee Drywall; Sanibel Captiva Community Bank; Universal Engineering Sciences; First Florida Integrity Bank; Your Team @ Schooner Realty; LandQwest; Pulte Group; Chris-Tel Construction; Spiro & Associates; Millennial Brewing Company; CONRIC pr + marketing; Something Borrowed Event Rentals and Lee County Sheriff's Office.
