Edwardsville, Ill., Aug. 30, 2018 – Edwardsville City Park will soon jump to life for the annual Oktoberfest celebration hosted by The Gori Law Firm and Global Brew Tap House. Saturday, September 29, 2018 from 11 am to 8 pm marks the fifth year for the event which raises funds and awareness towards the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation (MARF).
Oktoberfest features something for all ages including live German music, local food and retail vendors, a rock wall, an escape room, photo booth, raffle for a trip to Germany and, of course, more than 20 beers available for those 21 and over.
“Oktoberfest continues to grow in size and excitement each year,” shares Ryan High, owner of Global Brew Tap House. “We are proud to be part of this Edwardsville tradition and are happy to continue our partnership with The Gori Law Firm, making an impact on the efforts being made by MARF.”
The Gori Law Firm would like to exceed last year’s proceeds, which neared $30,000. To go beyond last year’s goal, The Gori Law Firm has once again generously committed to matching all Oktoberfest sponsorships. All current sponsorships and those added through Friday, September 21 will be matched by The Gori Law Firm and donated directly to MARF.
According to Randy Gori, founding partner of The Gori Law Firm, “Everyone at The Gori Law Firm is proud to be a part of this highly anticipated fall tradition that also raises money for a cause as worthy as MARF. This organization makes a significant impact on Mesothelioma research, and our mission is to continue to raise funds and awareness towards MARF, growing our efforts year after year.”
