Flinthills Services will be hosting its second annual “Burgers and Brew” fundraising event on Sept. 16. This year’s event will be held at Lynbrooke Sporting Clays in Augusta. Flinthills Services will provide day services and residential care to adults with developmental disabilities. Burgers and Brew raises funds to support under-funded services for clients.
The Wichita Wagon Masters will be grilling gourmet hamburgers. Walnut River Brewery will provide craft beer. Domestic beer, soft drinks and wine will also be served.
Tickets are available for both non-shooters and shooters. Non-shooter tickets are $25 each and include admission and dinner. Shooter tickets are $50 each, or $250 for a team of five. Space is limited for shooters, so advance registration is advised. The shooting course features 13 stations, and each shooter has 50 targets.
Shooters register at 1:30 p.m., and dinner and drinks for both shooters and non-shooters will be served starting at 5 p.m.
The Rock ‘N’ Rollers will provide entertainment. Rock ‘N’ Rollers are a musical group of adults with developmental disabilities.
“This group is inspirational!” Kathy Walter, executive director, said. “They are enthusiastic and help us focus on abilities rather than disabilities.”
Sheriff Kelley Herzet will serve as master of ceremonies for the evening. The event features raffle items and a silent auction.
Products made by adults with developmental disabilities will be for sale, including the exclusive line of Zenses products featuring scented bath bombs, bubble bars, fire starters and voice print greeting cards.
