Helping others feels good, but helping others while tossing back a few cold ones sure feels better.
Enter Brews to Benefit. Sponsored by the Phoenix New Times, it's part happy hour, part charity event, and one pretty good deal. Held from 6 to 8 p.m. once a month at a different drinking establishment around town, attendees pay just $10 to enjoy a hosted bar serving up that month's featured brew all while a portion of the proceeds go to benefit a local charity.
And if last month's sold-out event was an indication of Brews to Benefit's popularity, you'll want to score tickets to the March event, at Tempe's Yucca Tap Room, pronto-like.
The next Brews to Benefit happy hour will take place from 6 to 8 p.m., Thursday, March 7, at the Yucca Tap Room in Tempe. Proceeds will go to Ear Candy, a non-profit music organization dedicated to providing youth access to music education.
Tickets are $10 and go on sale tomorrow, Thursday, February 21. For more details or to purchase tickets, go the the Brews to Benefit website.
