For some people, music and drinks sounds like a perfect night, but you throw books in the mix and you got a chance to make a difference for one local organization. 

Wednesday night, the United Way of Greater Lima, the Lima Rotary, and the Met teamed up to hold the first ever Books, Blues, and Brews event. Three different bands performed for the event and the admission price was one book that would be donated to the Lima Urban Minority Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Outreach Program or UMADAOP. 

"I have seen some other things in other cities, a community really rallying around books and education. I visited UMADAOP and I saw on their bookshelves they had about 10 books for their entire program and I really wanted to fill that gap, fill that need for them and make a difference in the community," said Siera Bruggeman, Director of Marketing for United Way of Greater Lima.

Bruggeman says she would like to do the Book, Blues and Brews again next year.
