FLORIDA — RECAP and Sweet Onion Brewhouse partnered in the fight against poverty with a guest bartending event at the Village of Florida restaurant on Sunday, Jan. 22.

RECAP staff, board members and friends of the agency got out of the office and behind the bar, collecting $1,445 in tips for the agency’s anti-poverty programs.

Bartenders included Board President John Cappello, Head Start Health Coordinator Patti Myers, Warwick Supervisor Michael Sweeton, Port Jervis Community Development Agency Chairman Carl Hendrick, and Vice President of Todd Lyons Paving Alayna Waizenegger. The Dan Brother Band played live throughout the event.

The event was RECAP’s first fund raiser of 2017.

Sweet Onion Brewhouse was founded in 2014 and prides itself in sourcing fresh and local ingredients from the Hudson Valley. RECAP will continue fund-raising efforts with another guest bartending fundraiser at the Newburgh Brewing Company on Sunday, June 11.

RECAP’s programs include nutrition and advocacy, Head Start, addiction services, supportive housing, Fresh Start Café, and parole reentry.

The agency was established in 1965 after President Lyndon Johnson’s State of the Union Address a year earlier encouraged Americans to eradicate poverty and build a “Great Society.”
