2nd Annual Beer & Cheese Tasting Takes Place May 7, 2014

Beer, Cheese and Music Event Benefits the Tennessee Respite Coalition

Nashville, Tenn.—Music fans, beer enthusiasts and cheese aficionados can indulge at Beer & Cheese Tasting, an event to benefit the Tennessee Respite Coalition (TRC). Now in its second year, the event takes place at Jackalope Brewing Company in Nashville, TN on May 7th from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

Jackalope Brewing Company is located at 701 Eighth Avenue South, Nashville, Tennessee 37203.  Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door. More information about the event and tickets can be purchased online at www.tnrespite.org/event/beer-cheese or by calling (615) 269-8687.

Sponsors for the Beer & Cheese event are Jackalope Brewing Company, The Bloomy Rind, Nashville Universe, and Bounty Bev.

“This is an opportunity to enjoy an evening of great local beer, delicious cheese, and wonderful music that also raises funds for caregivers,” says Jennifer Abernathy, Executive Director of the TRC. “Funds raised will go to help full-time family caregivers who have one of the toughest jobs in the world. They often work 24 hours a day, seven days a week taking care of a loved one with special needs. This event will raise funds to give family caregivers the break they desperately need.”

The Tennessee Respite Coalition is a statewide non-profit organization, which advocates for and helps provide respite services to family caregivers. Respite, also known as the gift of time, is temporary relief for caregivers. Caregivers are people who care for spouses, parents, children, siblings or other loved ones facing a wide array of special needs.

Respite is often the most frequently requested and needed family support service. Respite is a preventive strategy that strengthens families, protects family health and well being, and allows individuals to remain in their own home. Respite has been shown to prevent or delay more costly out-of-home placements, reduce the risk of abuse or neglect, and to help keep all family members safe and stable.

Jennifer Abernathy, Executive Director of the Tennessee Respite Coalition, is available for print, radio and television interviews to discuss the Beer & Cheese Tasting, the TRC and the importance of respite services. She can also arrange interviews with families in need of or currently using respite care.
