ROANOKE (WSLS 10) – Deschutes Brewery and the city of Roanoke finalized plans for a big event this summer.

On August 27 at Elmwood Park, Deschutes will host a Street Pub.

All of the proceeds from the event will go to local non-profit organizations. Last year, their Street Pub events across the country raised $400,000 for local non-profits.
