A couple weeks ago a friend of mine reached out to me about an amazing thing he and another friend are doing for the families at Rockford's Gigi's Playhouse.

These two amazing Rockfordians named Scott and Tom are throwing a party at Prairie Street Brewhouse on Saturday, January 19 to celebrate turning 40 years old, but the only guest of honor at this party will be Gigi's Playhouse. How cool is that?!?!

It's called "Bash At The Brewhouse" , and it will feature craft beer tasting, a wine and beer pull, heavy hor d' oeuvres, silent auction items, music and more!

Tickets are on sale now for $15, or $25 for the beer tasting and entrance to the event, and ALL proceeds will benefit Gigi's Playhouse in Rockford to help them enrich and change the lives of Down Syndrome kids and the families that love them here in Rockford.

Y'all, I can't think of a better reason to drink delicious beer with your friends, so please buy your tickets to Bash At The Brewhouse now by clicking here.

Happy 40th Birthday, Tom!  I hope you have a blast at the party , and I must say Rockford is darn lucky to have you and Scott call this city home!
