ABOUT THE LEGIONS OF CRAFT BEER FEST: The Legions of Craft Beer Fest is a true community effort created in support of the Gurnee American Legion and Lake County Honor Flight. The Fest, originally conceived by Gurnee Mayor Kristina Kovarik, includes participation from a number of major Gurnee community members including the Village of Gurnee, Gurnee Mills Shopping Mall, Timothy O'Toole's Pub, 102.3 XLC and the Gurnee American Legion. In addition to raising funds to support veterans' causes, the Fest strives to offer a one-of-a-kind experience for craft beer enthusiasts by offering unique and hard-to-find beers typically not seen in the Chicagoland area.
ABOUT THE GURNEE AMERICAN LEGION POST 771: The Gurnee American Legion is Gurnee's local post of the American Legion. It focuses on completing projects in line with the Legion's four founding principles (Service to Veterans, the Care and Education of Children, Americanism and a Strong National Defense) while also providing veterans with opportunities to connect with each other, serve fellow veterans and foster and perpetuate the ideals which made this country great. Membership is open to all current veterans, and the public is welcome to visit the Post's bar and rent its hall. For more information, see the Post's website.
ABOUT THE LAKE COUNTY HONOR FLIGHT: Lake County Honor Flight is the local branch of the greater Honor Flight organization, which is dedicated to ensuring that veterans can visit Washington DC and see the memorials and monuments dedicated to their service. Honor Flight strives to fly and escort these veterans to these sites at no cost. For more information, see their website.
