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)
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!
