Our Pints for a Purpose program has been donating funds from beer sales to local nonprofits all winter long. Now, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival is open for the season (and wowing theatergoers with exceptional performances, we might add), and we are throwing a grand finale benefit evening to support OSF’s Daedalus Project on Tuesday, March 4th.
For more than two decades the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, the local community, and visitors have come together for the Daedalus Project. Every August the festival hosts a week long celebration of song, dance, theatre and more, to raise money to end the spread of HIV/AIDS and to support those who are living with the condition. Over the past 26 years the Daedalus Project has raised over $1.4 million dollars to support those affected with HIV/AIDS in our community and all over the world. For more information you can visit www.osfashland.org/daedalus.
The Pints for a Purpose benefit evening on March 4th will donate $2 of every pint of beer sold from 5-10pm to this organization. This is our last hurrah of the 2013-2014 benefit season! Make sure you don’t miss the chance to raise funds (and your beer) for this passionate local group.
Every summer, Standing Stone takes applications for Pints for a Purpose from local, grass-roots nonprofits with missions that align with our own. We then ask all our coworkers to vote on their top favorite organizations to support. We award each chosen nonprofit a benefit evening, during which they bring in as many friends, family and supporters as possible to raise money for a good cause. There’s no better way to enjoy a beer and give back to our community!
Other Pints for a Purpose recipients from the 2013-2014 season include Ashland Food Project, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), Rogue Valley Farm to School (RVF2S), and Friends of the Animal Shelter (FOTAS). If you know and love a local nonprofit that would benefit from an evening of fundraising at Standing Stone, have them visit our Pints for a Purpose webpage to learn more and apply during our annual application period.
We wish to see you with your favorite Standing Stone beer in hand on Tuesday, March 4th. In fact, we recommend making a night of it and reserving tickets for an OSF show after you imbibe (responsibly, of course) – Comedy of Errors begins at 8pm. Cheers to good beer, good performances and good causes!
