Room to Read-Seattle Charity Beer Event

Let's join Room to Read-Seattle Tuesday, September 24th 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 beer = 4 books 

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

Raffle tickets available for fun prizes... we'll have some ski SWAG too! 

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

If you are unable to attend, but would like to donate go 

Donate by Sept. 9th and your contribution will be TRIPLED thanks to support from Room to Read Partner Credit Suisse... - be sure to specify "Seattle Chapter". 

This is in conjunction with the Eastside Skiers Meetup Group. Contact their organizer, Clint Lunde for more information.

    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!

    Looking forward to meeting everyone at the event! (Each Fremont Brewing Co. beer will fund 4 local language books for kids-in-need!)
