All of us at WAS would like to thank our friends at Sedona Taphouse, for choosing us as the beneficiary of the July Steak-Out for Charity event (with a percentage of all proceeds going to WAS).
We're very grateful for the generous contribution connected to this terrific fundraising event, for the enjoyable outings to the Millmont St. taphouse, and for the many ways the Sedona Taphouse owners, managers, and staff think often about and contribute greatly to the community they serve so well. Join us again as we continue to frequent this favorite place of ours in Charlottesville, on future Steak Out Mondays, or any other time.
We are working to bring the summer program back in 2017.
