Jeremiah Weed Event Raises $5,000
For The Air Force Enlisted Village Charity

Seventeen lucky NASCAR fans received a very permanent reminder of their trip to Talladega Superspeedway last weekend, a free tattoo from Jeremiah Weed Flavored Malt Beverages.

NASCAR Championship contender #17 Matt Kenseth, who now sits in second place in the Chase standings, and the flavored malt beverage maker teamed up to offer free permanent tattoos to race fans for a good cause. Fans could choose from a number of designs including Matt’s signature, a No. 17 or a Jeremiah Weed Lightening Lemonade can.

When all was said and done, seventeen (seriously ironic and unplanned) adult fans got tatted up to show their loyalty.

Matt’s spotter Mike Calinoff was one of the seventeen; talk about dedication to the team!

Jeremiah Weed was so inspired by the turnout; they increased their donation to an overall sum of $5,000 to The Air Force Enlisted Village charity, which is committed to providing safe, secure and dignified homes for indigent surviving spouses of retired Air Force personnel. Historically, many members of the Air Force have enjoyed toasting with Jeremiah Weed after returning safely from their missions.

About Air Force Enlisted Village

The Air Force Enlisted Village was founded in 1967 to provide a safe, secure and dignified home for indigent surviving spouses of retired Air Force personnel. The Village’s primary goal and focus is to “Provide a Home,” and financial assistance to these women. The surviving spouse with the greatest need is cared for first and none are refused assistance due to financial status. Low pay and frequent military moves leave some spouses without careers, home equities, retirement plans or any significant assets. Surviving spouses requiring financial assistance live here among peers sharing memories of Air Force life without the stigma normally associated with subsidized housing facilities.
