Hi All, the next meetup was supposed to be with St Jude but I have not heard anything back from them. So, I am looking for a charity/cause/non-proft to support for our August 12th meetup. When I pick a cause I try to pick a organization that will support us to. By showing up with information, bringing people and encouraging their contacts to join DFAC. Please let me know if you have anyone in mind! We have been able to raise $200 - 300 per event at Spill the Wine. There is also a rocking local band that volunteered for this event. Please let me know, Ben Berry - Organizer
Drinks for a Cause functions as a way to raise money for Charities, Non-Profits, Causes and Disease Research while helping to support local independent restaurants and bars and provide a unique stimulating, social experience.
We all like to go out and have fun, drink, socialize and try new restaurants and bars. This gives us all those possibilities while supporting a great cause!
Here’s how it works: I work with local bar/restaurants to donate a portion of everything we drink/eat to be donated in our name (Drinks for a Cause) to whatever particular cause we are supporting that week.
This is a great opportunity to meet new people – try out new bars and restaurants – and have a great time, all while doing it for a worthwhile cause! We can all make a difference and have fun at the same time!
