Innovation Café’s summer networking event set for June 19

The Innovation Café summer networking event will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, June 19, at the Cocoa Beanery, west of the Penn State Hershey campus. Come for great networking, music, and samples from the area’s newest start-up, the small-batch brewing company, Mount Gretna Craft Brewery.

The event will include complimentary craft beer tastings from Mount Gretna Craft Brewery and appetizers from the Cocoa Beanery. Blues singer and songwriter Danielle Miraglia also will perform as part of the Hershey Farmers Market Summer Concert Series. The Farmers Market was established in 2010 to increase accessibility to healthy, locally-grown foods in the community and sponsors a series of free concerts every Thursday.

The event is free and will be held rain or shine. Lawn chairs will be provided. Register for the event at:
