Second Annual Oystoberfest a Great Success!

On Saturday, October 20, 2007 Connor's Heroes Foundation and St. Thomas Episcopal Church joined efforts once again to host the Second Annual Oystoberfest on the church grounds in Ginter Park. Over 3000 people enjoyed great food, live music, and children's activities (including crafts, a soccer area, Moon Walk and a pony ride). Fried and raw oysters, oyster shooters and barbeque were cooked to perfection by Johnny Giavos of the Sidewalk Cafe, 3 Monkeys, Kuba Kuba and the new Kitchen 64.

This year's Oystoberfest was the kick-off of a bone marrow drive and competition between the Virginia Tech Hokies Alumni Group and Cavs Cares, the University of Virginia alumni group.

Be sure to mark your calendars for this year's Third Annual Oystoberfest on Saturday, October 18, 2008.
