Early Life Speech and Language hosts 7th Annual Beer Fest to raise money to support FREE speech therapy for local kids

Sunday, April 7, 2019

Early Life Speech and Language, a local non-profit providing speech and language therapy for kids ages 2-7, at no cost to the families, hosts its 7th annual Beer Fest Fundraiser in the Seattle Scottish Rite Masonic Center on Saturday April 13, 2019 from noon to 5pm.

Director of Development and Communications Susie Beresford said, “This event grows year after year and raises money to support this wonderful service we provide. The community really rallies to make this happen. 
"Local breweries donate their beer, Central Market donates the tastiest bratwursts in town, Macrina Bakery donates brioche buns and the parents of our sweet kids in here, donate their time and efforts to make this event happen.”

Early Life Speech and Language was founded by the Scottish Rite Masons more than 30 years ago to fill a void. Speech and language services for children are severely limited. Either the child does not qualify for services, services are too expensive, or services are limited by a billable hour or insurance coverage. Early Life Speech and Language currently has clinics in Bremerton, Seattle, Spokane, Walla Walla, and service areas across the state of Washington.

Early Life Speech and Language provides speech and language therapy to children ages 2 – 7 at no cost to the families. One parent said, “Not having to deal with insurance or the financial strain that other speech therapy institutions require allows us as a family to focus on that, our family.”

There will be a more expansive list of breweries than ever before, 21 to be exact. Lowercase, Oakshire, Deschutes, Georgetown, Finnriver Cider, Alaskan, Lagunitas, Wild Ride, Mazama, Diamond Knot, Pear Up Cider, Salish Sea, Middleton, Scuttlebutt, Gallagher’s, Explorer, 192, Mac and Jack’s, Mike’s Hard Lemonade, Postdoc, and Triplehorn Brewing.

Beresford said that “Our auction is awesome. We have several gifts from local Edmonds businesses including the Edmonds Center for the Arts, Red Twig, Scratch Distillery and more. Auction items include high end cigar packages, University of Washington football tickets, dinner and a show packages for the best theaters in town, painting with cats, and so much more!”

Come learn about Early Life Speech and Language and how they plan to help more kids in Washington state than ever before.
