First Annual Red, White & Brews Supports Local Veterans

Assisted Living Team Members Selling Raffle Tickets

Litchfield, CT — Brandywine Living at Litchfield partnered with Norbrook Farm Brewery, Clocktown Brewing Company and Great Falls Brewery for their First Annual Red, White & Brew event held on Saturday, September 18th. The event was organized in honor of National Assisted Living Week 2021.

Attendees enjoyed beers from partnered breweries while dancing to the popular local band, Stache. Brandywine Living chefs prepared an assortment of delicious themed food including red, white and blue salsa cups, street corn, sliders, patriotic cupcakes and mason jar apple crisps.

Over $1,700 was raised during the event to benefit the Morgan-Weir American Legion Post 27 in Litchfield, CT and presented to Jim Amrich, Treasurer.

“In support of this year’s National Assisted Living Week theme, Compassion, Community & Caring, we chose to give back to our local military heroes. We were thrilled with the turnout and we look forward to partnering with the local breweries again next year to make this event even bigger and better. It’s always been important for Brandywine Living to give back to our local community,” commented Lindsay Miller, Brandywine Living Director of Community Relations.

In addition, residents of the senior living community enjoyed a full week of other themed events including a USO Dance Party, pie making for team members, Hoagies for Heroes, and fun games in their outdoor “mess hall”.
