CURVE, PA - The Altoona Curve are excited to announce the creation of Pints for Vets, presented by Ward Trucking and Sugarlands Distilling Co. The new beer, wine, & spirits sampling event will be held at Peoples Natural Gas Field on Saturday, May 18, with proceeds benefiting Band of Heroes Outdoors, a nonprofit organization that combats PTSD and veteran suicide through hunting, fishing, and enjoying the therapeutic aspects of the outdoors.

Altoona Curve concession stands will be open for food options. All attendees will receive a tasting glass upon entry and can sample and purchase a wide variety of beer, wines, & spirits from over 30 local vendors.

"When Band of Heroes Outdoors approached us in the fall about hosting this event, we were immediately interested in helping out," said Curve GM Nate Bowen. "Veterans and their families make sacrifices on behalf of us all, and we are looking forward to recognizing them while bringing in well-known celebrities and adding another fun community-oriented event at the ballpark this summer."
