Over $2K Raised with Pints for a Purpose
The numbers are in, and Standing Stone had a greatly successful giving season with our Pints for a Purpose donation program. Thank you to everyone who came out and helped raise over $2,000 total for local nonprofits! We’re thrilled with the community support for the participating organizations, and we’re so happy you all chose to come have a beer (or two) with us to raise money.
Here was the line-up for the 2013-2014 Pints for a Purpose season:
• Nov. 12 Ashland Food Project– This organization brings in over one thousand pounds of food a year, one bag at a time, for local food banks. It encourages long-term, community involvement.
• Dec. 3 CASA of Jackson County – CASA volunteers speak-up for the safety and well-being of children who have come under the care of Child Welfare due to abuse and/or neglect. They are sometimes the only legal advocates the children have.
• Jan. 14 Rogue Valley Farm to School– This Southern Oregon non-profit educates children about our food system through hands-on farm and garden projects, and by increasing local foods in school cafeterias.
• Feb. 4 Friends of the Animal Shelter– FOTAS helps animals in area shelters by encouraging adoption, improving quality of life, promoting spaying and neutering pets, and educating the community about responsible pet guardianship and animal welfare.
• Mar. 4th OSF’s Daedalus Project – This Oregon Shakespeare Festival project raises funds to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS and support those who are living with the condition.
On each nonprofit’s designated benefit evening, Standing Stone pledged $2 for every pint of beer sold from 5-10pm. Fans came in to enjoy craft beer with friends and support their favorite organizations in the area. By visiting the brewpub, you all helped give hundreds of dollars to each of these great groups.
If you have a favorite nonprofit in Southern Oregon, encourage them to apply for our 2014-2015 Pints for a Purpose season! You can view the program guidelines and the application process on our website, and we accept submissions during the summer season. Once the application period is up, we get all our coworkers to vote on their favorites. We’re excited to see new faces next year and get even more local nonprofits involved.
