Shorewood, WI (October 21st 2017, 1:00-7:00pm) – The Three Lions Pub has not forgotten about the devastation that swept over Puerto Rico in the past month of September, and is teaming up with local Puerto Ricans, friends, and teammates to raise donations for those still dealing with the devastation today. The category 4/5 hurricanes left destruction in its path, 80% of agriculture on the island was destroyed, many people’s houses demolished. Roads were wiped out, most power lines down with some possibly having to wait a year before they regain power.

Jason, and his wife Awilda Knopes, are residents of the city of Milwaukee with personal ties to those suffering in Puerto Rico. Awilda was born and raised in Puerto Rico and they have many family and friends that live there, which aren’t getting the necessary help. They have decided to create their own fundraiser and get the money directly into the hands of people in need. 100% of the money raised during the event at the Three Lions, will go directly to their family and friends living on the island. Jason states, “Our family has family and they have family and so on and they are all sticking together in this difficult time. Many people are sheltering with others so the numbers are highly underreported.”

Jason Knopes is a long time member of the Milwaukee Brewers Soccer Club and so has reached out to his fellow teammates, Chris Tinker & David Price, owners of Three Lions Pub, to help in hosting the Americans Supporting Americans Fundraiser. The Three Lions prides themselves on community engagement and support of such issues both locally and worldwide. The Milwaukee Brewers will also be showing their support for the Knopes family with teammates and their families donating and attending the event on Oct. 21st.

The Three Lions Pub has committed to donating at least 15% of all sales during the event, along with our staff more than happy to donate their tips to the cause as well. There will be Live Music, by the local musician Jesse Voelker, Jameson will be featured along with other drink and food specials celebrating Puerto Rican culture. Door prizes such as handmade wooden benches along with raffles will also take place. Beautiful flowers are being donated by Dan Gaus of Esperanza Flowers, coming from the Andes Mountains of Ecuador, along with homemade baked goods, also for sale, with proceeds going straight back to the cause.

We are excited to open our doors to all those that wish to donate to this great cause and show support for the people of Puerto Rico still trying to make it day by day. This is a family-friendly event, with activities for kids, and open to the community. For those that are not necessarily able to make the event but are still eager to donate, Jason and Awilda Knopes have created a Giving Grid page in which they are also accepting donations for their Americans Supporting Americans Fundraiser. We welcome the press to come and enjoy the event and share the story of Jason and his wife Awilda.

Please visit and DONATE. Any amount helps.
