Become a Raider of the Lost Bruegala of 2020

This August join us in celebrating the “Lost Bruegala” of 2020. Bruegala is a charity beer and wine festival run by the Bloomington-Normal Jaycees. Over the past 20 years Bruegala has raised more than $260,000 for local nonprofits. Although due to COVID-19 the festival has been postponed until 2021 we believe the pandemic does not mean we have to cancel fun in 2020! The Bloomington-Normal Jaycees are excited to celebrate the Lost Bruegala of 2020 with our community. Become a raider of the Lost Bruegala by purchasing our 2020 logo T shirts, Tanks, and Tasting Glasses designed by Meltdown Creative Works as well as a special edition glass rendition of our 2019 Tasting Glass and Throw Back Items from Past Bruegalas. All profits from this project will be split between our five charitable partners: Ecology Action Center, Recycling Furniture for Families, West Bloomington Revitalization Project, Dreams are Possible, and Prairie State Legal Services. These nonprofits are essential to the improvement of the place that we call home. Please help us support their work by becoming a raider of the Lost Bruegala of 2020. Purchase swag separately or score a sweet deal on a Raider’s Swag Pack from August 22nd – September 20th!

The Jaycees will arrange porch drops for all swag for citizens of Bloomington-Normal, Peoria, and Champaign-Urbana the last week of September. Live outside of Bloomington-Normal? We will arrange a convenient pick up day and location.
