Bruegala, a charity beer, wine, and music festival produced by the Bloomington Normal Jaycees, is proud to announce that seven local charities will be splitting the 2014 Bruegala proceeds. After giving over $55,000 to local charities in 2013, Bruegala 2014 profits will be split among the following local charities:
Association of Horizon
Child Protection Network/CASA
Community Health Care Clinic
Heroes Embracing Autistic Lives (H.E.A.L)
Bloomington Normal Jaycees
According to Bruegala co-chairman Seth Carter, ‘A record number of charities applied to be considered for Bruegala funds this year. The Jaycees faced a difficult task selecting the charity recipients given the quality of the groups that applied. However, we are all impressed by the positive impact these selected charities are having right here in our community. The Jaycees are proud to partner with such wonderful organizations.’
Bruegala, now in its 15th year, will once again feature 200-300 craft beers, 50+ wines, multiple bands, and all sorts of yummy food. The celebration of good drinks, good music and good times starts at 6-11 on Friday, August 22 with music featuring Modern Echo and continues with extended hours on Saturday, August 23 as feature act Switchback takes the stage. On Saturday, Bruegala opens with beer and music on the lawn starting at 2 pm, beer tasting inside the BCPA ballroom starting at 5pm, and event doors closing at 11pm.
