You came, you drank craft beer, and you gave to local organizations. We want to thank everyone who joined us during our 2014/2015 Pints for a Purpose season! We gave even more money this year to southern Oregon nonprofits, and we have you all to thank for supporting the program and loving beer.
Through our Pints for a Purpose donation program, we pledged $2 for every pint of beer sold to local nonprofits on their designated benefit evening. Beer-lovers and supporters came to enjoy craft brews and give to their favorite organizations in the area. By raising your pints with friends, you all helped give hundreds of dollars to each of this year’s beneficiaries.
All together, we raised just over $2,300 for these local groups. We couldn’t have done it without community support (well, actually, we could have tried but it wouldn’t have been pretty to watch us drink 1,150 pints alone).
If you know a nonprofit in southern Oregon that would like to be in next year’s line-up, encourage them to apply for our 2015/2016 Pints for a Purpose season. The program guidelines and online application are on our website, and we’ll accept submissions from June through October 1st. Once all the applications are in, we’ll get all our coworkers to vote on top five, and do it all again next year.
Thanks again to everyone who joined us on any of our Pints for a Purpose benefit evenings, and we’re excited to see new and returning faces next year. Let’s get together, drink some local beer, and give to great causes!
