Pints for a Purpose Benefits Rogue Farm Corps, 2/3
Our next Pints for a Purpose benefit evening is around the corner, and we’re excited to announce Rogue Farm Corps (RFC) as the next recipient. On Tuesday, February 3rd from 5-10pm, we’ll donate $2 for every pint of beer sold at Standing Stone to this youth-focused organization.
RFC trains the next generation of farmers and ranchers through hands-on education. Their programs combine training, classroom learning and farm-based experience on a diverse network of commercial family farms in Oregon. Led by dedicated mentors and agricultural professionals, RFC offers opportunities to learn organic farming, animal husbandry, and marketing and distribution techniques. Visit their website to get involved, and learn more about their FarmsNext and FarmsNow programs.
RFC will be our fourth nonprofit recipient for the 2014/2015 season. In summer of 2014 we opened the Pints for a Purpose application period for local, grass-roots organizations. Then, we gave the list of applicants to our coworkers and voted on the top five nonprofits that Standing Stone employees are passionate about. We’re delighted that RFC made the cut, as their enthusiasm and passion for what they do is contagious. We’re excited to welcome them on their benefit evening! You’ll find them at a table set up by the front door with more info.
Come enjoy a pint of local craft beer and give to a great local cause. Every pint ordered earns Rogue Farm Corps $2, and it adds up quick! Bring your friends, drink responsibly, and join us for a great time celebrating this Southern Oregon nonprofit.
