The Lost Abbey Brewery
The Lost Abbey Event on June 28th, 2015 was hosted by Port Brewing Co/The Lost Abbey in San Marcos, CA. The beneficiary of this event was The Oceanside Firefighters Union/JP Benevolent Fund. The brewery hosted a wonderfully successful event that brought together friends, family, and strangers in support of a great cause. The event sold out at 200 tickets and included a lot of amazing donations from so many generous people allowing us to raise money through a silent auction. We were able to present a check to the Oceanside Firefighters for the JP Benevolent Fund for $13,ooo!
About the Beneficiary:
After suffering from a tragic drunk driving accident in 2007 that nearly ended her life, Jessica overcame years of obstacles including learning to walk, using her arm again and learning to rely on her friends, family, and boyfriend JP for day to day tasks. In 2011, Jessica attended a chronic pain program that allowed her to manage her pain and gain her independence back through holistic treatment. Jessica's boyfriend JP stood by her side throughout the process and was her rock when she underwent countless doctors appointments, surgeries, and setbacks. In April 2014 JP proposed to Jessica on the beach in Carlsbad and Jessica could not have been happier. Her dream wedding was held at St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic church and Twin Oaks Garden Estate on May 9, 2015. Jessica and JP's positivity and glowing spirits were apparent to all guests who had the privilege of attending the magical event. While on their honeymoon in Hawaii, Jessica passed away peacefully in her sleep with JP by her side. Funds donated to the JP Benevolent Fund will be used to cover the costs of bringing Jessica home from Hawaii and covering funeral expenses. Jessica's resilience and determination will continue to be inspiring for everyone who had the chance to know her.
