Come kick-off our MONTH-LONG Free Rare Beer for School Supplies Drive benefiting Mighty Writers with a happy hour, book drive, and meet-and-greet.
This will be like our other Rare Beer for School Supplies drives, but different. If you remember from a few months ago, we filled an entire SUV with book donations (see below), so this time we're aiming to help Mighty Writers with their next goal - a Rec Center project.
"We are embarking on a mission to get Mighty Writers into rec centers across the city. So many rec centers have tons of kids but not a lot of resources for programming. We want to solve that issue while doing what we do best - teaching kids to think and write with clarity. We're working with Parks & Rec to make it happen, but it takes a lot of funding for staff, program planning, etc." - Melanie London, Melanie London, Director of Marketing and Special Projects @ Mighty Writers
We're kicking off the drive on September 6th and keeping it going. All. Month. Long.
From 3pm until closing on September 6th, bring a book (gently used or new, quality is more important than condition) or text MIGHTY10 or MIGHTY25 to 20222 to donate $10 or $25. Show your confirmation to your bartender or server, and get a FREE pour of super rare beer from Dock Street. The beer will change up from week to week through the month, but it will be never-before-made by us, rare, and unusual, as always.
We'll have fun happy hour specials, and a poster for guests to sign and recommend their favorite book to the Mighty Writers kids.
Mighty Writers staffers will be on hand to talk about the organization, what they do (it's pretty awesome) and what they plan on doing with more funding.
The Text-to-Donate initiative will go on all month through October 1st - show us your donation confirmation and get a pour of rare Dock Street beer, for free.
