by Tony Manley
The Medina County Ohio division of the Ancient Order of Hibernians Irish Brigade Division in Medina County, Ohio announced the recipients of their 2021 Annual Beer Run Charity Event proceeds. Each of the following organizations is receiving a $200.00 check from the Irish Brigade:
- Birthcare of Medina County – a volunteer staffed agency that provides emergency assistance and support to families with infants and young children in Medina County.
- Feeding Medina County – creating programs to educate, engage and lead the Medina County community in creating an environment where no one goes hungry. They nourish our community with essential programs that put food on the table for children, families and seniors who are at risk of hunger.
- Regina Health Center – offers quality, faith-based skilled nursing, assisted living and rehabilitation services with compassionate care in a unique setting that is open to residents of all faiths. They also provide a services program directed to the Catholic clergy.
The Ancient Order of Hibernians (AOH) is America’s oldest Irish Catholic Fraternal Organization, founded in May, 1836. The AOH can trace its roots back to a series of similar societies that existed in Ireland for more than 300 years.
The Irish Brigade is Medina County’s singular AOH division, and inaugurated its Annual Beer Run several years ago as a recurring fund-raising event. A full-size commercial bus carries the boys and their friends to five area breweries to sample their products and have a day of comradery and fun. Historically, the event has been a sellout, or near sell out event, with proceeds going to local organizations that demonstrate the Ancient Order of Hibernian’s motto of Friendship, Unity and Christian Charity.
