BEERS FOR BOOKS - A skier & a snowboarder walk into a bar...

Skiers & Riders, now that the slopes are closing... let's get together for a beer (& a good cause)!

Let's join Room to Read-Seattle Tuesday, June 4th from 7:00 - 10:00pm at King's Hardware in Ballard, for their Beers for Books event.

Buy a drink proceeds will be donated to Room to Read's Local Language Publishing Program -- producing treasured books for kids in places like Nepal, Cambodia, Laos and South Africa.

It may just be the easiest gift giving you've ever done -have a drink, give a book!

$1 from every King's Lemonade = 1 book

$4 from every pint of Fremont Brewing Company or Lowercase Brewing beer = 4 books

$13 from every pitcher of Fremont Brewing Company or Lowercase Brewing beer = 13 books! 

 Buy raffle tickets to win fun prizes: $5 for one ticket; $20 for 5 tickets

Help us reach our goal of raising $1,500 which will produce 1,500 books!

    Please don't bring any books, as they're way too expensive to ship. Room to Read has their own publishing... to print books in local languages, written & illustrated by local authors & artists... for as little as $1 per book! - Buy a beer & it covers 4 books!

    Hi all,

    Beers for Books is next week! We have folks from a few other meetup groups attending as well. We'll be in the back room at King's Hardware. We'll have Meetup signs on a table or two, but if you can't find us, swing by the Room to Read information table. You won't be able to miss it, and one of our volunteers will be able to point you to where the Meetup groups are.

    Looking forward to meeting you next Wednesday!

    - Mike

    Just to clarify... you can't buy beer with books. It's the other way around, for every beer you buy, the proceeds fund books for kids in 10 countries that Room to Read operates. For example, one $4 beer pays for 4 local-language children's books, produced by Room to Read's own local language publishing group... using local in-country authors and artists to develop and present the stories. (Please don't bring books to the event, as the expense to ship them overseas is prohibitive.) - thanks!
