Make mine an "Old Style" for awhile
I’m Johnny Come Lately with news of how Old Style has again issued a run of specially designed cans sporting the a Fire Service axes and emblem and more. It’s a fundraising effort where Old Style will donate 20 cents from every commemorative case sold to four fire related charities. Though initially issued 3 or 4 years ago, this most recent effort will last through August of this year or while supplies last.
What also caught my eye was that the program was extended to include my now home state of Wisconsin and Indiana as well. Part of the company’s Midwest Bravest program, over $45,000 has been raised. Donations are earmarked for the Ende, Menzer, Walsh and Quinn Retirees, Widows and Children’s Assistance Fund, the IPPFA Remembrance & Survivors Fund, the Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin Charitable Foundation and the Professional Firefighters’ Union of Indiana.
Supplies of Old Style seemed scarce nearby my home in Wisconsin, but a recent drive down to Illinois allowed me to pick up a case — for souvenir purpose only, of course. Ahem….
Nice going, Old Style!!
