Topic: Free Charity
We've recieved the good word for April 2009: Drink beer at the Wild Rose Brewery Taproom, and for every pint of Wild Rose Brown, you'll be giving $0.25 to injured, sick, and otherwise unfortunate local wildlife.
The CIA has played for the Calgary Wildlife Rehabilitation Society's benefit before, and you can find James and Jocelyn bottle-feeding baby mammals, giving worms to baby birds, and helping with deer, ducks, hawks, and other critters. The society does awesome work, and they're totally volunteer-based, so the least you can do is knock back a pint or a hundred in April. We'll be there! Wild Rose Taproom Location and Information
See below for the nitty-gritty from Lousie, who is a big kahuna with the CWRS.
Some great news!...... We have been selected by Wild Rose Brewery, to be their Charity of choice for April 2009.
Each month the Brewery raise funds via sales in their Taproom and contribute them to local and deserving charities.
Here is some additional information on the Wild Rose Brewery Charity Pint Program, sent to CWRS by the organizer:
"Helping others, one sip at a time."
At Wild Rose, we believe in giving back to the community. As such, we have created the Wild Rose Charity Pint Program where each month we select a different charitable organization to support.
Throughout the month of April, Wild Rose Brewery would like to donate $0.25 to the Calgary Wildlife Rehabilitation Society for every pint of Wild Rose Brown purchased in the Wild Rose Brewery & Taproom.
.....with spring and summer hopefully on the way, what better way to raise a pint in honour of CWRS!
