Greetings Fellow ABFAS & Mason Colleagues,

For those of you who may not be aware, our colleague Ms. Tya M. El (Sponsored 
Programs) is an advisory board member for First Book of Northern Virginia.  To 
promote its reading/literacy initiatives, the organization raises money to 
purchase books to distribute to low-income Students in Northern 
Virginia.**During Veteran's Day weekend, First Book is hosting a "Beer Tasting 
and Benefits" event (see the attached flyer).

Tickets are $20 each; including a $10 donation to First Book, a tour of the 
brewery, a souvenir tasting glass, and a full tasting of all of their beers on 
tap. The event will take place at Port City Brewer, located in Old Town 
Alexandria.   If you are interested, please contact Tya to purchase a ticket in 
advance; feel free to share it with your friends and family.

Thank you in advance for your participation and support.
