Lidl US will host two Oktoberfest events on Long Island in September to benefit the John Theissen Children’s Foundation, a charity devoted to assisting sick and underprivileged children in the region. All the proceeds will be used to provide hospitals and child care facilities with therapeutic and recreational equipment, defray medical expenses for families in need and offer children special wishes and gifts throughout the year.

“We are proud to partner with Lidl and appreciate their generous support for our work with the neediest children and their families on Long Island,” says John Theissen, executive director and founder of the John Theissen Children’s Foundation. “This donation will help us bring smiles and make a difference in the lives of thousands of kids in our community.”

Lidl will bring an authentic Oktoberfest experience to Center Moriches and Huntington Station this month. The events will feature award-winning beer and freshly baked, authentic Oktoberfest fare, including Bavarian pretzels and bratwurst. Smitty’s Polka Band, Melinda and the Oompahs and Street Beat Brass will provide traditional German entertainment.

The events will be held:

  • Saturday, Sept. 21 and Sunday, Sept. 22, 1 p.m.-6 p.m. at the Lidl at 812 Montauk Highway, Center Moriches.
  • Saturday, Sept. 28 and Sunday, Sept. 29, 1 p.m.-6 p.m. at the Lidl at Walt Whitman Mall, 160 Walt Whitman Road, Huntington Station.

“We are thrilled to show our support for the John Theissen Children’s Foundation, a cause that has helped so many children in need on Long Island,” says Johannes Fieber, CEO of Lidl US. “Our team looks forward to celebrating Oktoberfest with the community and bringing authentic, award-winning beer and food that benefits this inspiring charity.”
