As part of our ongoing efforts to support our community, we are very excited to announce our sponsorship of the 2017 Beards, Beers & Brats Festival on October 14th. While you may know us for our residential and commercial roofing, siding, window, door, and gutter services throughout Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia—we are also quite competitive when it comes to growing and styling our beards and mustaches! Well, that’s not entirely true. However, we will certainly do our best since this event is partnering with such a wonderful cause: Ava’s T21 Foundation. Trust us when we say—you don’t want to miss out on this year’s Beards, Beers & Brats!
Ava’s T21 Foundation
Defined by inclusion, awareness, and compassion, Ava’s T21 Foundation is a non-profit organization that strives to promote acceptance for people with Down syndrome. In addition to other organizations, they donate proceeds from events to F.R.I.E.N.D.S (Family Resource, Information, and Education Network for Down Syndrome) and NDSS (The National Down Syndrome Society). You can learn more about this organization by visiting their website.
Competitions & Activities
Starting at 11:00 a.m., Beards, Beers & Brats is going to be a wonderful day for everyone in attendance. Downtown Main Street in Mount Airy, MD will be filled with people enjoying live music, delicious food, and local beers, ciders, and wines! In addition to all of the food and drink, there will also be several competitions and activities, including:
- Beard & Mustache Competitions
