November Wrap Up and December Save the Date

Maybe it was the election or early distractions caused by turkey-eating daydreams, but we failed to post our results from the November Happy Hour.  We are pleased to have raised $300 for ACHIEVEability and their many programs.  A big Thank You to Nodding Head for providing yummy quesadillas and perogies, in addition to their great beer selection! 

Moving on to December, we need everyone to mark their calendars for the Tuesday, December 4th Happy Hour at The Happy Rooster benefiting The Gift of Life Donor House.  The Happy Rooster has welcomed a new chef and is looking forward to sharing some of the new menu with us, as well as the usual free drink.  Your $10 donation will go directly to The Gift of Life Donor House.  We hope to see you there, spreading some holiday cheer!  Event runs from 5:30-8pm.

November Event - Nodding Head Brewery with ACHIEVEability

We are happy to have so much to celebrate this coming Tuesday (Nov. 6th).  Not only did we all make it through a week that started with one heck of a storm (Sandy, we're looking at you!), but we'll also be celebrating the fact that the end of political ad season will only be a handful of hours away (starting a slow clap now!) We can't wait to end this love/hate relationship we have with our TVs at the moment.

And of course the main reason to come out and Drink Up, Give Back with us on Tuesday is that we'll be supporting ACHIEVEability, a local organization committed to ending the cycle of poverty.  Nodding Head Brewery is generously donating one free drink and some free appetizers to everyone who donates $10 at the door.  Festivities will kick off at 5:30pm so be sure to hit the polls in the morning so you have no excuse not to join us. 

No matter how much you think your vote will matter, we know your donation will go a long way.  Take a look at what your dollars will do for ACHIEVEability:
$500 will help for pay a family’s rent for one month.
$250 will help purchase textbooks for a semester. 
$100 will help a family of three buy groceries for one month.
$50 will help purchase school supplies.
$25 will provide a week of public transportation for a participant to reach

So...get your tails (and hanging chads) to Nodding Head and down a beer or several for a good cause.

October was Outstanding!

One week ago we gathered at Finn McCools to drink, eat and raise money!  Of course you did not disappoint.  We raised $450 for Urban Blazers which will allow them to take 90 students hiking!  High fives all around for a great event. 

We look forward to seeing everyone on November 6th (Election Night!) when we "Drink Up, Give Back" to ACHIEVEability.  No matter which candidate you support, you know your attendance will help support the work of an awesome community agency which helps families break the generational cycle of poverty!

October Event - Finn McCools with Urban Blazers

In October, we want you to "Get out!" Get out of your office, get out of your house, and get outside! We think this month's beneficiaries, Urban Blazers, would soundly endorse that last one as their mission is to get Philadelphia's youth outdoors and enjoying nature. 
No matter if you're the outdoorsy type or the out on the town type, the most important thing is that you get out and have some fun with us. Join us at Finn McCools on Tuesday, Oct. 2nd, where $10 will get you your first drink for free and an hour of free appetizers. 100% of the proceeds will go to Urban Blazers and 100% of the fun will go to you!  See you from 5:30-8pm.

Nothing "ruff" about September's event!

What up dawgs?! (and dog-lovers!)  We are excited that so many people were able to make it out to Smith's and help us raise money for The Monster Milers.  Thanks to your serious drinking skills, we were able to raise $710 for this awesome group of dog-lovin' runners.

It was great to connect with some many new friends via SCP and the Monster Milers and we hope to see you all again very soon....like next month (wink, wink). 

In October we will "Drink Up, Give Back" to Urban Blazers. Be sure to mark those calendars for Oct. 2nd right now!

September Event - Smith's with The Monster Milers

This month we're looking at everyone with our puppy dog eyes. How can you say no to that?! Join us in September as we support the little monsters in your life and the city's shelters. Monster Milers pairs shelter dogs and runners together to provide exercise, interaction, and a hopeful forever home to our furry friends. Smith's bar is generously providing the usual  (1) free drink and some free appetizers to everyone who comes out to the event. Admission is $10 (or "bones" if you're using dog-speak). 

The Monster Milers will be using funds from this event to procure their city permit for their upcoming 5K run for dog shelters (slated for 2013)!  

Bring yourself, bring a friend but please don't bring any real monsters (they're scary!) We can't wait to see you there (if we had tails. they'd be wagging).
