We had a great turnout last Tuesday night for the first Pints for a Purpose benefit evening of our 2014/2015 season. Rogue Climate brought in fans and friends to drink beer and support their cause, and raised over $700 through our beer sales donation program! They brought “Rogue Climate” pins for guests to wear and show their pride, and stationed volunteers at the front table to welcome supporters and talk about the organization’s mission.
We’re also happy to announce we’ve counted the remainder of the in-house ballots and our coworkers have chosen the next four recipients for Pints for a Purpose this year. All benefits are Tuesdays evenings from 5-10pm, and $2 of every beer sold goes to the organizations:
December 2 – WaterWatch of Oregon
This nonprofit’s mission is to protect and restore flows in our rivers to sustain the native fish, wildlife, and the people who depend on healthy rivers. WaterWatch was the first organization in the West to seek structural reform of antiquated water laws to protect and restore our rivers.
January 13 – Friends of the Ashland Public Library
The mission of the Friends of the Ashland Public Library is to support our library to achieve any and all of its goals. Ensuring free access to information is part of Ashland’s community life, to which the Friends are firmly dedicated.
February 3 – Rogue Farm Corps
Rogue Farm Corps trains the next generation of farmers and ranchers through hands-on educational programs. They work to support our local agricultural economy and serve as a model for other communities.
March 3 – Rogue Valley Earth Day
This event has become a Rogue Valley tradition. It’s a forum for non-profits, businesses and governments to raise awareness, a venue for local musicians, artists and performers to share their talents, and an outlet for students to display their knowledge and creativity.
We’re excited to bring beer-lovers together for great, local causes! Toast with us on any of the upcoming dates to show your enthusiasm for nonprofits and craft beer. We encourage everyone to drink responsibly and have a great time celebrating with us all winter-long.
