Texpats NYC Press Release for West, TX Benefit

  1. 1. TEXPATS NYC & BROOKLYN KOLACHE CO. TO HOLD BENEFIT FOR VICTIMS OF WEST, TX ON SUNDAY, APRIL 28TH TEXAS SHINER BOCK BEER & KOLACHES OFFERED WITH DONATION April 24, 2012 (Brooklyn, NY) - A group of Texans living in New York City have banded together to hold a benefit for the town of West, TX this Sunday, April 28th from 3-6pm. The event is organized by Texpats NYC and is sponsored by Brooklyn Kolache Co. and Shiner Bock Beer, who will provide guests food and drinks with a required $20 contribution to the donation jar. 100% of the proceeds from the benefit will go to victims in West via POINTWEST Bank. The Texan community was rocked last week with news that a fertilizer plant in the small town of West, TX had killed 14, injured over 200 more, and badly damaged the small Texas town. The news hit home for many Texans, who had often stopped in the town of West on road trips between Austin and Dallas on Interstate-35. Everyone who goes through West visits either the Czech Stop or the Village Bakery, two bakeries specializing in kolaches, a traditional Czech pastry that is filled with either sweet or savory fillings like fruit, cheese, or sausage, which Czech immigrants brought with them to Texas. Brooklyn Kolache Co. pays homage to the Czech-Texas style of kolaches at its Bed-Stuy location and is the only place to get a kolache in the city. Brooklyn Kolache Co. partnered with Meetup group, the Texpats, a collective of Texas transplants in NYC, to create the benefit and are excited to have Texas-brewed, Shiner Bock Beer as a sponsor. Shiner has been produced at the Spoetzel Brewery in the town of Shiner, TX since 1909, but just started being sold at limited locations in NYC on April 15th, 2013. Who: Texpats NYC, Brooklyn Kolache Co., Shiner Bock Beer What: A benefit to raise money for the victims of West, TX, a town badly affected by a fertilizer plant explosion on April 17, 2013. When: Sunday, April 28th from 3pm-6pm Where: Brooklyn Kolache Co. 520 DeKalb Ave. Brooklyn, NY 11205 (718) 398-1111 1 block from the G train at Bedford-Nostrand Why: Residents of West need funds to help with medical bills for those injured and to help rebuild the town. Brooklyn Kolache Co. pays homage to traditional Texas kolaches like those found at West’s Czech Stop. Required Donation: $20 for sweet and savory kolaches and Shiner Bock beer until we run out!
