We are so excited to announce that the Blues & Brews for Barry event will officially take place on , at the most awesome Red Hare Brewing Company in Marietta! Mark your calendars and get excited because you will NOT want to miss this one!
For those of you unfamiliar with the reason for this event, Barry Costello - a beloved member of the East Cobb community, suffered a massive stroke that left him paralyzed on his right side and unable to speak. He has been diagnosed with aphasia which means while he can understand everything going on around him, he has a hard time forming words. Barry has already made great strides in his recovery, but speech and physical therapy are not cheap and that's where you step in! Thanks so much to everyone who has contributed so far! We still have about $6,000 to raise, and can use all the help we can get.
This event is open to the public so spread the word, bring your friends - let's pack this place!
Online advance sales for those over the age of 20 are $25/person + a small online ticketing fee.
