On February 17 at 6pm Delta Beer Lab plans to host its first Nonprofit Partner Mixer to kick off the brewery’s 4th Anniversary celebration. Each month since opening, Delta Beer Lab has partnered with a new Nonprofit Partner and has raised more than $167,000 in four years.
The Nonprofit Partner Mixer will highlight many of the Nonprofit Partners Delta Beer Lab has worked with and will function as a networking opportunity with like-minded, progressive organizations as well as the opportunity to engage with Delta guests.
“This will be a great opportunity for our past Nonprofit Partners to showcase the changes they have made in our community and a chance for our guests to get a close-up look at where their donations go when they contribute to these organizations through our taproom,” said Delta Beer Lab Community Engagement Coordinator Andrew Thomas. “We are looking forward to having all of these folx together under our roof.”
The event will include a guided tour for all of the past Nonprofit Partners in attendance. It will also function to highlight opportunities to get more involved and make a difference as well as showcase volunteer opportunities on an ongoing basis. In his new role as Community Engagement Coordinator, Thomas will be organizing educational programming, such as talks, discussions, and open mic events. These upcoming programs will be announced and detailed at the Nonprofit Partner Mixer.
One of the new programs Thomas will be outlining will be called Crafting Conversations, and core goals of the program include organizing, amplifying, and educating folx on how they can better serve their community.
“We highly encourage the public to come into the Nonprofit Mixer, have a pint of beer, and get to know the folx we have worked with over the last four years to make our community a better place for everyone,” said Thomas.
