From June 1 to June 23, we celebrate Pride with our second Pours For Pride campaign.
Last year, with your help, we donated $3,000 to The Bill 7 Award – a registered charitable trust that awards post-secondary scholarships to LGBTQ+ students who are in financial need. This year, our goal is to increase our impact by at least $1,000 for a $4,000 donation – enough to fund one complete scholarship, including all related administrative costs.
WHY THE BILL 7 AWARD?
Nearly one third of LGBTQ+ students drop out of high school. One third delay attending post-secondary school due to affordability or debt. Supporting LGBTQ+ students – financially and emotionally – increases post-secondary graduation rates, it helps them realize their full potential and it puts them on a path to becoming the next leaders in our community.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Drink a Beer in the Tap Room
The very easiest way to contribute is to join us in the Tap Room for a beer.We will donate 50 cents from every 10 and 12 oz pour between June 1st and 23rd. You will also have the option to match our donation while checking-out.
