MIAMI COUNTY ― Troy-Miami County Public Library will host the “Brewin’ for Books” fundraiser at Buffalo Wild Wings in Troy on Saturday, Sept. 9, from 11 a.m. to closing time. There will be a craft beer tasting and option to create a special Ohio art project. In addition, Buffalo Wild Wings will be donating 10 percent of the day’s sales to Miami County’s Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library program.
“This program is made possible by donations from Miami County businesses, foundations, and United Way agencies,” said Heather Baker, community relations specialist. “We are currently providing books to each month by mail to half of all children under the age of 5 in Miami County. We are so grateful to have found a champion for childhood literacy at our local Buffalo Wild Wings.”
The Imagination Library program became a county-wide program in Miami County in 2014. Since then, more than 100,000 books have been sent to Miami County children at no cost to their parents.
This event will include two different ticket options to support the Dolly Parton Imagination Library Miami County. The tasting-only ticket option at a cost of $30 will include a beer tasting with craft beers from the Yellow Springs Brewery, including a beer made only for this event. The first 75 to purchase the $30 ticket will also receive a free insulated beer glass.
The tasting and art project ticket option at a cost of $80 includes the beer tasting, a customized craft suitable for hanging, and a free appetizer from Buffalo Wild Wings. Instruction from Corks and Crafts for the art project begins at 1 p.m. Sept. 9, with assistance from the Troy Altrusa club. A limited number of these tasting and art project tickets are available and are first-come, first-served only.
Tickets are only valid for day of event during regular business hours. Additional tasting-only tickets will be available the day of event, but will not include the custom glass. Tickets will be available for purchase at the Troy-Miami County Public Library beginning Monday, Aug. 21, and at Buffalo Wild Wings in Troy beginning Monday, Aug. 28.
Buffalo Wild Wings customers will also have the option to “play the Squares” for a chance to win Ohio State gear during the Ohio State and Oklahoma football game at 7:30 p.m. Buffalo Wild Wings is located at, 2313 W. Main St., Troy.
