This August, Gloucester's Eric Smith will be joining Team Next Step to run the 2015 Falmouth Road Race with the goal of empowering teens and young adults living with cancer, blood diseases and rare genetic disorders to move from "Why Me?" to "What's Next?"

In an effort to create a one-of-a-kind fundraising event to support Next Step, Eric enlisted Hale Street's General Manager Zorba Kinigstein and the team from the Wachusett Brewing Company - and Beers for a Better Next Step was born! 

The event will be held on Thursday, August 13th from 5:00 to 9:00 PM. 

What exactly is Beers for a Better Next Step?                                                                                                                                                              $10 gets you a Wachusett brew, signature pint glass, dry hops infuser (hopsicle) & we donate $5 to Next Step! You can order your Beer for a Better Next Step over dinner with your family or at the bar with friends  - we're flexible. 

We'll also have a Gift Basket Raffle & Giveaways - plus a portion of the evening's sales will be donated to Next Step.
