NEWBURGH — Join the Newburgh Brewing Company for an afternoon fundraiser Aug. 19. Drink beer, wine, or soda and have some great food for a good cause. Historians and preservationists will be wandering around, admiring the splendid adaptive re-use of the old paper box factory building. The Brewery’s cheerful and experienced staff will serve you, but they are generously donating all tips collected between 1 and 4 p.m. to benefit the Historical Society.
As a special treat, the 16-piece Swing Shift Orchestra will perform a full concert of big band music from the swing era by Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Glen Miller, and the like.
There will be raffles and prizes, including gift certificates to three dozen popular local restaurants and businesses. Also, there will be an art auction with original artwork by local professional artists.
The Newburgh Brewing Company is located at 88 South Colden St., Newburgh. Raffle tickets for the prizes at $5 each or three for $10. All ages welcome. For more information please call 845-561-2585.
