Hops Into Spring - LogoThe Kemmons Wilson School of Hospitality and Resort Management at the University of Memphis is hosting “Hops Into Spring,” a craft beer and gourmet burger tasting event benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The event will be held at 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 11 in the Grand Ballroom at the Holiday Inn University of Memphis, 3700 Central Avenue.

The beer tasting will feature beer from Wiseacre Brewing Co. and Eagle Distributing and local homebrew from the Memphis Brewers Association. Food will be prepared by the students.

Here’s more from the event organizers:

The event’s highlights include a best burger contest, a live performance by the University’s own Sound Fuzion band, a silent auction with items like a Basketball signed by Memphis Tigers Coach Josh Pastner and a Grizzlies Jersey autographed by two time NBA All-star Marc Gasol, a live auction featuring artwork created by University of Memphis students, a FedEx hub tour and flight simulator, a speed painting show, and more. Guests will also have a chance to win a certificate to attend a closed practice with Josh Pastner and the Tigers Basketball Team!

The students are planning the whole event and have the following social media accounts: @HopsIntoSpring on Twitter and Instagram, #HopsIntoSpring2015 to see the latest news, and find the event on Facebook.

Chris Browne, a Kemmons Wilson School student and the student chair for the event, said, “The experience of planning this event has been a memorable one for me and my classmates. Not only do we get a real world experience of planning an event, we also get the satisfaction of benefiting such a wonderful organization, the one that not only inspires us, but the entire world.”

Malorie Taff, a Kemmons Wilson student and a Décor Team member, said, “To me, this event is not only a grade or a line on my resume, but an opportunity to help the kids of St. Jude have a future and to raise awareness for the extensive research they accomplish at the hospital. It also helps me gain experience while I’m in school so when I graduate I have the knowledge necessary to be successful and to put me ahead of the competition.”
