As a local business owner and member of the community, I think it is important to give back. I am grateful for the opportunity to partner with like-minded organizations and businesses to accomplish this
Washington, DC (PRWEB) August 02, 2013
During the month of August, $0.50 from every pint and $2.00 from every pitcher of New Belgium draft sold at Mellow Mushroom Adams Morgan, in the neighborhood of DC will be donated to Miriam’s Kitchen. In addition, they will partner with a local blog, One Paycheck Away, to tell the stories of DC’s homeless, including an interview with a Miriam’s Kitchen guest.
“As a local business owner and member of the community, I think it is important to give back. I am grateful for the opportunity to partner with like-minded organizations and businesses to accomplish this,” said Pooja Mehta, owner of DC’s Mellow Mushroom.
This month-long event will include a happy hour on August 15 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Mellow Mushroom on 18th St NW with specials on New Belgium Beers. Representatives from Miriam’s Kitchen and One Paycheck Away will be present at the event to discuss the work they are doing around bringing awareness to and ending chronic homelessness in the city.
“We are very appreciative that generous businesses like Mellow Mushroom exist in our community and are willing to host events such as these,” said Ashley Lawson, director of corporate partnerships at Miriam’s Kitchen. Mellow Mushroom will also host a beer tasting event on August 29, during which patrons can enter to win a bike and sample New Belgium’s Rolle Bolle. Proceeds collected from $5.00 bike raffle tickets, which will be sold throughout the month of August, will also be donated to Miriam’s Kitchen.
