BAGS TOURNEY FOR FAMILIES OF TWO FALLEN LIBERTYVILLE VETERANS
RAISES MORE THAN $3,000 AT MICKEY FINN’S BREWERY
LIBERTYVILLE – Mickey Finn’s Brewery on May 17 raised more than $3,000 in support of the families of two Libertyville fallen war veterans, Sgt. Daniel Nerstrom and Spc. Wesley Wells.
The microbrewery hosted a special Bags Tourney For Fallen Veterans in which teams paid $50 entry fees. Admission of $10 per person included free pizza and appetizers. All money raised will be presented to the families and donations still are being accepted at Mickey Finn’s Brewery, 345 N. Milwaukee Avenue, Libertyville, IL 60048.
Sgt. Nerstrom served in Iraq while Spc. Wells served in Afghanistan. Both soldiers were war casualties and honored Sunday for their service to our country.
“This was an awesome first year event supported by awesome people whether they knew the two soldiers or not,” said Brian Grano, owner of Mickey Finn’s Brewery. “It was a sobering reminder that freedom isn’t free.”
Sponsors, who also donated to the Fallen Families fund, included AMME Promotions, Palmieri Personal Training, Joe and Mark Policht, and Aspen Landscaping, T&T Productions and Mickey Finn’s Brewery.
