2013 Next Gen Sociable

Thanks to the hard work and support of the sponsors, participants, and the Next Gen volunteer committee, Next Gen Sociable had 250 guests and raised over $8,500 to support the United Way of KFL&A in 2013. Next Gen Sociable provides an afternoon of fun, offering sampling of specialty beer and whisky with live entertainment.
