Join us for Bradsgiving on Nov. 21!

The Friends of Brad Memorial Foundation (FOBMF) is organizing a festive pre-Thanksgiving celebration from 6-10pm on Wednesday, November 21 at the Shop Coffeehouse and 218 Taphouse in Virginia.

Bradsgiving will include live music by four area bands, delectable homemade pie and a small silent auction. The festivities will benefit the FOBMF, a volunteer-run nonprofit with programs to celebrate and cultivate young musicians in Northeastern Minnesota.

Duluth’s Bradtoberfest Run/Rawk/Crawl connects Duluth’s craft beer, music, and running communities, offering participants a unique opportunity to sample local beer and music while traversing a path that links local breweries and beer-centric venues. Proceeds benefit young musicians, supporting programs such as the Duluth Music Resource Center and FOBMF‘s scholarship, fellowship, and other charitable programs.
