Enumclaw’s Headworks Brewing is hosting “Pint Night” silent auction and raffle to raise money for wounded veterans tomorrow, Aug. 15.
The organization Headworks is fundraising for is the Gary Sinise Foundation, a national charity that aims to serve active duty military, veterans, first responders, and their families.
Money raised at the event will go specifically to the Foundation’s R.I.S.E. (Restoring Independence Supporting Empowerment) program, which helps severely wounded, ill, and aging veterans and first responders by providing home modifications, mobility devices, and even adapted vehicles.
According to the Foundation’s website, 57 mortgage-free “smart homes” have been built for wounded vets across the nation, with another 17 under construction.
The Pint Night event is also sponsored by the Northwest Fire Velo, the northwest chapter of a nation-wide nonprofit of firefighters who fundraise primarily through their love of bicycling.
For at least the last three years, the Northwest Fire Velo have participated in the Firefighters Ride 4 R.I.S.E., riding hundreds of miles for the Gary Sinise Foundation program.
This year’s ride is Aug. 29, starting in Seattle and biking 1,600 miles to Colorado Springs.
All the money raised at the Pint Night event will go toward the Northwest Fire Velo’s $100,000 goal.
Pint Night will be from 5 to 9 p.m. on Aug. 15 at the brewery, located at 1110 Marshall Ave. in Enumclaw.
