On November 9, 2022, Chenega MIOS was honored to host the first-ever MIOS Fall Invitational that led into Brews for the Brave at Old Hickory Golf Club in Woodbridge, VA. The day kicked off at 12:30 pm with a shotgun start to the Fall Invitational, an event held exclusively for MIOS subsidiary Presidents, their partners, other Chenega personnel, and loyal Chenega Invitational supporters to get together for a smaller event to allow for more close networking and a fun day overall. Following the MIOS Fall Invitational, we held Brews for the Brave at the golf course clubhouse.
Brews for the Brave was an event where five local breweries, Brew Republic, Tucked Away Brewing, Ornery Beer Company, Honor Brewing Company, and Lost Boy Cider donated their time to pour tastings of two of their most popular beers. We invited the local community to purchase tickets to enjoy these tastings while snacking on some food, listening to a live musician from the area, and playing some table games, all while enjoying some much-needed face-to-face time with others from the community. The goal at the end of the day was to host a fun day of events all while raising money for our Nation’s veterans through Vigilant Torch Association (VTA).
The turnout was incredible; we had close to 140 attendees and are so proud to announce that through these efforts, we raised over $7,000 for VTA, bringing our total donations to Vigilant Torch to over $110,000 from this year alone! We could not be more appreciative of everyone’s support. Thank you to everyone who joined us for the MIOS Fall Invitational and Brews for the Brave. We hope that everyone who played in the tournament enjoyed a nice day on the course and that those who attended Brews for the Brave had a fun night enjoying the great food, beer tastings, and live music.
We can’t wait to hopefully host these events again next year! Be sure to keep a look out for when signups begin if you, too, would like to be a part of these difference-making events.
