Clearbrook promises summer fun with upcoming brewery tasting and bar event

For more than 65 years, Clearbrook has been providing personalized services and programs for adults and children with intellectual/developmental disabilities. A nonprofit, Clearbrook relies on the generosity of their community to go above and beyond for their individuals. In fact, 89% of every dollar donated goes right back to those they serve.

Events are one way they raise the much needed funds. New this year, Clearbrook is offering a new take on their signature event: Friends Wine and Beer Tasting. It will take place on June 4 at Half Day Brewing Company in Lincolnshire. Featuring wine and beer tastings, appetizers, a raffle, and an open bar, the event promises a good time for $75 per person or $145 per couple. Group rates are also available.

Clearbrook's Associate Board, a group of young professionals committed to increasing awareness of Clearbrook's mission to empower adults and children with intellectual/developmental disabilities, is hosting Cocktails with Clearbrook on June 17 at Barcocina in Chicago. Tickets are $50 and include one drink ticket and appetizers.

Clearbrook would like to thank the sponsors who make these events possible: John and Gretchen Auerbach, Chris and Kim Fronk, John and Kathi Vosicky, Chris and Carla Riley, Michael Wente, John and Pam Tarte, BMO Harris Bank, Workday, Allen and Janet Lattof, Cardinal Color Group, Canon, Comcast, Jewel Osco, UVANTA, Baker Tilly US, LLP, BorgWarner, Sedgebrook, Dugan and Lopatka, Remax, Ceres Food Group, Rubin Law, Sysmex, D'vine Wine and Gifts, and Half Day Brewing Company.
