Beer Tasting will raise money for local fire departments

Posted by wlpo on July 10, 2013

If your favorite beer has started to taste like water, no worries, your new favorite brew could be at a summer beer tasting that’s benefiting the Utica, Oglesby and Lostant fire departments.

Each fire department knows how to put the money to good use. Todd Misner of the Oglesby Fire Department says they would like to use the money to buy new equipment for rescuing people involved in car crashes.

Dave Mertes of the Lostant Fire Department says they would also like to buy new equipment. The Utica Fire Protection District needs to raise $150,000 for a new ambulance.

The tasting is Friday from 6-8:30pm at Senica’s Oak Ridge and is sponsored by Rudy’s Liquor in La Salle. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door and that includes the cost of the samples and food.  Tickets are on sale at Rudy’s and through the participating fire departments.
