in News/Upcoming Events

NEWPORT — Dr. Les Lockridge and the Northeast Kingdom Hematology Oncology (NEKHO) clinic staff are gearing up for the First Annual NEKHO Brew Fest, which will take place this Saturday at Kingdom Brewing in Newport.

The event will feature brew, food, live music and fun as NEKHO celebrate and work to replenish their Patient Fund, which helps to fill in the healthcare gaps faced by their patients.

All proceeds go directly to patients who need it the most, whether it is a food card, a gas card, or medication and treatment co-pays.

The cost of this event is $17.50, or two tickets for $30. This includes BBQ and lots of side dishes, non-alcoholic beverages, beer sampling, and a custom glass. The event runs from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Besides live music, there will also be a silent auction, and organizers say “some surprises.”

Excellent beer will be available for purchase from the event sponsors at Kingdom Brewing, which is located at 353 Coburn Hill Road, in Newport.

All are welcome, so come on down.
