Cheers to Beers and Careers Celebrates Skilled Trades Day

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Cheers to Beers and Careers, a family-friendly event that celebrates National Skilled Trades Day, will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. May 3 at Penguin City Brewing.

National Skilled Trades Day was founded by Mahoning Valley resident Claudia Kovach in 2019. The celebration event is back in person this year after having to go remote for a few years because of the pandemic. Kovach says large companies across the country are starting to celebrate the day with their employees.

“You could have a very nice career in Youngstown and the surrounding community without the college debt,” Kovach says. “That means you could get a house faster, you could get a boat or maybe a sports car – but without the college debt.”
