Fundraiser: Sunday, August 5th DASH DAY at the Derby

From the folks at the Red Derby (3718 14th Street, NW):

this summer, the derby has been doing a back-to-school drive in support of DASH, District Alliance for Safe Housing — a local dc 501(c)(3) organization — that provides access to safe housing for moms and kids who are victims of domestic violence. DASH is an awesome organization that has been around for approximately 5 years.

every season, we do a fundraiser in support of DASH — this summer, we have committed to providing the 63 kids at DASH who are going back to school with backpacks and school supplies (ie, paper, binders, notebooks, weekly planners, glue sticks, pens, pencils, dictionaries … — essentially, everything with which a student needs to start off the school year).

we’re declaring this sunday, August 5th DASH DAY
some of our reps, in particular, New Belgium Brewery and Premium Distributorship of DC and Republic National Distributing Company, have been most generous …. —so, on Sunday, August 5th…all day and all night — if you come to the derby, and you drink:
new belgium beers (fat tire, ranger or shift)
natty boh
and a tasty selection of drinks …
all the proceeds from the purchase of these beers and tasty drinks will go directly to DASH and the back to school drive!

    Does anyone other than nostalgic, blue-collar Baltimoreans drink Natty Bo? It is truly one of the most horrible beers in the entire world.

    WOW! These people are giving profits to raise money for kids and your comment is on the beer.What a complete douche~bag …

  • We just want to thank Dan and PoP for their support.We have raised almost $2000 to date and have collected 40 backpacks and a fair amount of school supplies. DASH is a fantastic local charity that started 5 years ago just after we opened.

    As for the Natty Bo if you don’t like it we are giving proceeds from 5 other beers and a number of cocktails.Yes we have 60+ beers but these reps were the only ones willing to work with us.

    Thank you all Derby~
