Hoosier Beer Helps Hoosiers at CPC, this Saturday (May 10).

Even if you're reading from afar, you're probably aware that a line of violent tornadoes swept across Southern Indiana last Friday afternoon. There was considerable damage roughly 15 miles north of NABC's two New Albany locations.

Overnight, Saturday's pre-planned "Welcome Back Sherman Minton Bridge" festivities in downtown New Albany were transformed into a way to collect monies and materials for the relief effort. NABC's customers donated around $950, and the company matched it; the Red Cross and Salvation Army are the beneficiaries. Needless to say, communities across this and neighboring states (including Kentucky, which also had pockets of destruction) held similar fundraisers and amassed items to convey to the storm's victims.

Charlestown Pizza Company already has devoted its proceeds from a business day (this week on Tuesday) to the cause, and this Saturday, March 10, CPC is staging Hoosier Beer Helps Hoosiers, a beer benefit for tornado victims, details of which are reprinted below. It is self-explanatory; NABC is happy to help out with two of our heavy hitters, and you are encouraged to stop by and contribute.


The Charlestown Pizza Company is hosting a beer benefit for Tornado victims on Saturday March 10th from 12- 9 pm
