Anthony Griffin, Berwyn Development Corporation (BDC) Executive Director, commented, “We welcome everyone from beer novices to enthusiasts to enjoy an afternoon in Proksa Park, one of our local gems. Great beer in a great venue will make for great times.”
The net proceeds from the festival will benefit the Moving Wall Initiative. The Moving Wall is the half-size replica of the Washington, D.C. Vietnam Veterans Memorial. It was conceived of and built by Vietnam Veterans, John Devitt, Gerry Haver and Norris Shears as a remembrance and healing tool for all those people who may never have a chance to visit the Memorial in Washington, D.C. “The Moving Wall” will come to the Berwyn Park District’s Proksa Park from August 7 through August 11, 2014. This event will be free and open to all who wish to visit. Access to the Moving Wall will be available on a 24-hour basis at Proksa Park.
Mal Montoya, BDC Board President, continued, “The BDC is thrilled to be able to pledge the festival’s net proceeds to a meaningful cause that honors our veterans’ legacies of bravery and sacrifice.”
