On Oct. 1, those who love football and Oktoberfest are invited to attend “RYPtoberFest” at the Greyhound Park, from 3 to 11 p.m., to benefit the Rypien Foundation and Inland Northwest Honor Flight.
The fun will include an all-you-can-eat dinner buffet and snacks, entertainment by the Polkatones and The Kelly Hughes Band, and, of course, German beer. Mark Rypien, Super Bowl MVP, will also be at the event, dressed in traditional German Oktoberfest garb, throwing footballs and singing with the band.
Cost is $50 per person and includes food, a commemorative beer stein and five drink tokens. Proceeds will benefit the Rypien Foundation, which helps children with cancer and their families. The event will also benefit the Honor Flight, flying World War II veterans to Washington, D.C., to see the war memorials.
