I actually posted this cool news on the 502 Brews Facebook page recently, but here’s the full press release from Blue Stallion:
LEXINGTON, Kentucky, October 22, 2014 – Blue Stallion Brewing Company will start donating 10% of sales on Mondays to area non-profits this November. The program, dubbed “Mission Mondays”, will feature a host of organizations whose missions benefit the Lexington community.
Every Monday, Blue Stallion plans to work with a local non-profit to host a fundraiser event showcasing the organization and its mission. 10% of all taproom sales for the day will go to the organization.
The brewery hosted fundraisers in the past for local charities, but has not done it on a recurring basis. The owners thought it was a good time to make something official and give back to the community in a consistent way.
“We have a deep love for Lexington. All the owners either grew up here or decided to stay here after realizing what a great place it is. The Mission Mondays program allows us to give back to the community that’s given us so much,” said co-owner Xavier Donnelly.
The plan is to focus each month on organizations with similar or overlapping goals. The first month, November, will focus on food pantries and community housing.
Co-owner Kore Donnelly said, “We have a taproom well-suited to hosting events like these. With our ample space non-profits can host their own fundraiser and awareness event and earn funds from sales at the bar at the same time.”
More information on what organizations will have Monday events is available on Blue Stallion Brewing’s website.
