“Taste Freedom” Campaign Changes Military Families Lives With Generous Donation To Operation Homefront
July 8, 2015

“We’re extremely grateful to Brick House Tavern + Tap and their customers for an incredibly successful second straight year of our partnership,” said Tim Farrell, chief operating officer, Operation Homefront. “The monies raised will help us provide critical relief, resiliency and support programs tailored to the unique demands placed on families whose loved ones volunteer to serve and defend the freedoms we enjoy daily.”

Brick House Tavern + Tap will salute a deserving military family that has been awarded a mortgage-free home from Operation Homefront and Chase. The home was awarded during the closing event on July 8, 2015, to U.S. Army Specialist Bryan Hinojosa and his family, who moved to the Pharr, Texas-area. As a Texas native, Army Specialist Hinojosa will get to stay in hishome state while remaining closer to family, as well as continue his education. Hinojosa hopes to one day open his own business to help veterans cope with stress and anger management.

Brick House Tavern + Tap believes in giving back to the communities it serves. “We were honored to be a part of the ‘Taste Freedom’ campaign and are thankful to have had the opportunity to give back to our heroes in such a meaningful way,” Catalano said.
