Glosta Strong supportingBoston Strong
This evening, the Cape Ann Brewing Company will host Glosta Strong Supporting Boston Strong, a fundraising event for victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.
Featuring entertainment by local artist and rising star Chelsea Berry and friends, Cape Ann Brewing will be donating 50 percent of the evening’s proceeds to the One Fund Boston. All money raised from several raffles and a silent auction will also go to the fund.
“When tragedy hits anywhere it’s important for people and businesses alike to do their part to make a difference,” Cape Ann Brewing owner Jeremy Goldberg said. “With this attack hitting so close to home, it’s even more important that Gloucester stands up and supports our Boston brothers and sisters. This event is our small way of doing what we can.”
The event begins at 5 p.m., and will be held at The Pub at Cape Ann Brewing, located at 11 Rogers St. in Gloucester. Suggested donation at the door is $5.
