On Friday, May 12th, the MacDill Top III Association along with Olympian Clinical Research (OCR) hosted another “Brew Ha-Ha for the Troops” fundraiser at Cigar City Cider & Mead in Ybor benefitting the Air Force Enlisted Village (AFEV) Mission.  OCR embraces the chance to demonstrate our appreciation of our nation’s brave soldiers by organizing fundraisers in conjunction with the MacDill Top III Association on behalf of the AFEV.

The Air Force Enlisted Men’s Widows and Dependents Home Foundation, founded in 1967, provides a safe and dignified residence for indigent surviving spouses of retired, enlisted airmen. At the time, a survey conducted by the Air Force determined that more than 50,000 widows of enlisted airmen were living in poverty.

The MacDill Top III Association is a private organization consisting of service members of the top 3 enlisted ranks assigned to MacDill Air Force Base (AFB). This group’s dedication to the AFEV’s mission is inspiring!

Olympian Clinical Research has been actively conducting research in the areas of dermatology, mental health, primary care, women’s health, and memory loss since 2007. OCR ensures that all research is carefully conducted and that all study participants have a positive experience while gaining knowledge about their condition. Along with the potential health benefits from volunteering, study participants are given access to treatments not yet widely available.

The combined efforts of the MacDill Top III Association and Olympian Clinical Research resulted in a highly successful event! Over $600 was raised for AFEV to support their newly expanded housing accommodations and over 70 people attended the event to show their support!

Our tremendously talented musical partners, the CRS Project, generously donated their time again creating a perfect atmosphere for the event!

Cigar City Cider & Mead was an excellent host as always helping to create a family-friendly atmosphere while serving delicious craft beverages.

On behalf of the three organizations involved, we thank all attendees for supporting efforts to serve active duty and retired men, women and families of the U.S. Armed Forces.

Please join us on June 2nd from 5-8PM at St. Petersburg Brewing Company for another Brew Ha-Ha for the Troops event! We will have Live Music again and even more raffle items for attendees! More details available on the Facebook event:
