Altamont Beer Works will host "Community for Education," on Sat., April 4. This will be a fundraiser benefitting the Livermore Valley Education Foundation (LVEF).

The event runs from noon until 7 p.m. It will feature live music from four bands, over $5,000 in raffle prizes, a cornhole tournament with prizes, barbecue and kabob, and the Tri-Valley's tastiest craft brews on tap. Admission is free. All ages are welcome. Altamont Beer Works is located at 2402 Research Drive in Livermore.

LVEF Board members Dave Haberman and Jon Williams conceived the idea for Community for Education. Haberman and Williams are founding members of bluegrass band Crawdad Republic, one of the bands performing at Community for Education.

"All of the members of Crawdad Republic love participating in community events and fundraisers, especially those that benefit our hometown," said Haberman. "We have partnered with Altamont Beer Works for fundraisers before and we've had great success. We are all lucky to live in a community that comes out in droves to support good causes."

The music lineup also includes Bacchus Brothers, Some Special Moves, and Wolf Hamlin & the Front Porch Drifters.

Altamont Beer Works owner Steve Sartori was delighted when Haberman and Williams approached him about the fundraiser. "We love to throw charity events, because we are all about the growth and future of our community and we strive to be a supportive neighborhood brewery," said Sartori. "Livermore is where we grew up and this is where we will be raising our families. It is very important for us to be involved with the charities, such as LVEF, that support our kids and community."
