Join Auburn VFW Post 1741 at Rail Hop’n Brewing Company for a Veteran’s fundraising event on Saturday, April 27, from 2 to 4 p.m.

Everyone is welcome. No reservation is required.

“We invite Auburn-area veterans and the public to visit Rail Hop’n Brewery and help us raise money for the Auburn VFW Post 1741 general fund,” said Billy Jack Newman, brew master of Rail Hop’n Brewing. “A portion of the proceeds from this event will go directly to VFW Post 1741.”

In addition, attendees can enter a fundraising raffle to name a special veterans brew Rail Hop’n is creating, with a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the special brew will benefit VFW Post 1741 when it is released this summer.

Auburn VFW Post 1741 supports veterans in the area who are in need of comradeship, financial help and educational support.

“We strive to help vets in as many ways as possible,” said Tony Whetstine, VFW Post 1741 commander. “We are looking to grow our local post with younger vets who are looking to connect with others who have a shared experience.”

Those interested in supporting the fundraising event can visit Rail Hop’n Brewing, 122 W. Main St., Suite 101B, Auburn.
