For those who like beer, Columbia Care's Summerfest Beer Blast at Westbury House was the place to be last weekend, July 31, 2015. Approximately 200 people turned out to try samples from 13 tasting stations, that in addition to beer, included wine and margaritas.

Sponsors for the fundraising event included Cindy and Randy Wilmore, Vince Vinson, First Farmers, Venue Tenn, the law office of Wesley Mack Bryant, and Maura Lipp and Tammy Stokes.
Tim Jones, President of Columbia Cares, said that plans are already being made for the popular Winterfest Beer Blast, which will be held in January 2016.
Columbia CARES began serving the South Central Region of Middle Tennessee in 1992. As the region's only AIDS-Service Organization, it focuses on prevention, testing and social services for those living with HIV/AIDS.
A United Way of Maury County partner, Columbia Care also receives funding from the Tennessee Department of Health, United Way of Metro Nashville, City of Columbia, First Presbyterian Church of Columbia, TN, Baptist Healing Trust, and Broadway Care/Equity Fights AIDS, as well as many generous individuals and groups.
