Vice Mayor Pro-Tem, Jerry Davis Hosts Festival to Benefit After-School Programming in Fifth Ward on Friday, October 11
Featuring live music, craft beer, and a raffle, oktoBrew will raise money for Houston schools on Oct. 11
On October 11, Council Member Jerry Davis hosts the second annual oktoBrew festival in the historic Fifth Ward, at the corner of Clinton Drive and Grove Street.
With 100 percent of the event proceeds benefiting after-school programming in northeast Houston, the free-admission festival features live music performances from local acts Joe Carmouche, Adrenaline, DJ Monstaa and Emcee Chicken Mike.
ABOUT THE OKTOBREW EVENT
Guests can enter a raffle for the chance to win travel packages from United Airlines, Houston sports memorabilia and restaurant gift cards.
Turkey legs, kabobs and locally brewed beer from Anheuser-Busch, Saint Arnold and Spindletap breweries will be available for purchase.
Guests can screen-print their own tote or t-shirt at TXRX’s vendor booth and experience some of the same hands-on activities that will be offered to local students in after-school programs.
In 2018, oktoBrew raised $4,000 dollars for three Fifth Ward-area elementary schools and supported programs such as gardening and 3D printing.
This year, oktoBrew will extend its reach to include six Northeast Houston elementary schools: Dogan Elementary, Nat Q. Henderson Elementary, Isaacs Elementary, Atherton Elementary, Hilliard Elementary and Bruce Elementary.
Proceeds from the events will support a variety of after-school programs, from apiary science to urban farming.
“As a teacher who grew up in the area, I know how much afterschool programs can change a child’s life,” said Council Member Jerry Davis. Come out and join us – we’ll have your favorite beers and a classic Nickel party, all for a good cause.”
Admission to this event is free. Houstonians can register in advance online here, however an RSVP is not required to attend.
