Drink a Little, Help a Lot Fundraiser to Help Children in Malawi
Milwaukeeans will have an opportunity to help support construction of a new school in the eastern African nation of Malawi through the Drink a Little, Help a Lot fundraiser, hosted by Milwaukee area residents Niyati Desai and Claire Lang. The event takes place from 6 to 10 p.m. on March 9 at MobCraft Beer Brewery and Taproom, in the Walker’s Point neighborhood.
Festivities will include unique MobCraft brews, games and a special brewery tour. Bar snacks and raffle tickets will be on sale, with prizes from one of two categories: Funky Gadgets (unusual items) and Local Fun (tickets to area attractions such as Milwaukee Art Museum). DJ Kasanova will provide the evening’s entertainment.
All proceeds from the event will help support GE Power and Renewable Energy employees’ efforts to build and resource a school in Malawi, a nation consistently ranked among the top 20 most underdeveloped countries in the world. The effort is a partnership with buildOn, a movement that empowers urban youth in the United States to transform their neighborhoods and the world through intensive community service.
Location: 505 S. 5th St., Milwaukee. For more information, visit Eventbrite.com/e/drink-a-little-help-a-lot-tickets-42762133693.
