FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) – Another event that's raising money for a good cause is the Junior Achievement Beer and Wine Festival.

Ten specialty wineries and eight craft brewers from around the state set up shop at Headwaters Park Saturday afternoon, to offer taste-tests of their products, and to share their knowledge of wine and beer making with the Fort Wayne community.

All proceeds raised will go to the Junior Achievement Center so it can fund its programs like J.A. Biz Town and J.A. Finance Park.

Organizers say the festival is a great way for adults to come together to support Junior Achievement's mission: to prepare and educate our youth to succeed in the global economy.
