From owner Nic Makris:

“With the support of DCBrau the Blaguard (2003 18th Street, NW in Adams Morgan) and Homestead (3911 Georgia Avenue, NW in Petworth) are donating $2 of every DCBrau pint sold to Race for Hope, a charity 5k here in DC to help fund brain tumor research.

Last year, only a few days prior to Homestead opening, the mother of Nic Makris (owner of The Blaguard and Homestead), passed away following a valiant 11-year fight with brain cancer. The months leading up to her passing, and months following, were incredibly difficult for Nic and his family, but their family is not alone. Everyone has been affected by cancer whether as a patient, family member or friend. We have the opportunity to fight back against this disease and Nic and his family have invited the public to come and support them in our fight against cancer!
The week-long fundraiser at the Blaguard and Homestead runs May 1st-May 6th. With the purchase of any DCBrau $2 gets donated to their Race for Hope team, Chris’s Cronies, in honor of Nic’s mother, Christine Makris. There will also be a fundraising event and DCBrau Collaboration tap takeover on May 6th, 2017 from 2-7pm at the Blaguard, and there will be a TON of raffle prizes, including gift cards, Nats/O’s tickets, sports memorabilia, a “Friday Night on the River” package, a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle, Port City Brewery tour for 12 and more! If you can’t make it by for a pint or to the fundraiser, but you’re still interested in supporting the event, please consider joining Chris’ Cronies and walking/running in the Race for Hope (May 7th) at Freedom Plaza. To join the team, or make a donation directly to their team, please visit www.braintumorcommunity.org/goto/chriscronies2017.

Today’s the day!! Thanks again to all who donated in the fight to end childhood cancers. You guys kicked ass and PoPville broke $2000 for the first time this year. So for all who donated remember to come to Boundary Stone to pick up your t-shirts and stay for a pint or three. Also this year the Boundary Stone team has added an awesome raffle – $50 for a 1-100 chance to win a trip to win a trip to Ireland with hotels and VIP tours of Guinness and Jameson. Amazing.

My head is getting shaved around 4:15pm but I’ll be there from around 3-6. Thanks to all who’ve helped out!! See you soon(ish.)

eastern band

“Dear PoPville,

While at the Georgetown men’s basketball game on Saturday, the Eastern High School marching band played at halftime and they mentioned they are raising funds to take a trip to New Orleans in April to play and visit Southern University, so band members can talk to the band director about possible scholarships. The Go Fund Me page is below:

eastern2neworleans The Blue and White Marching Machine is excited about the opportunity to travel to Louisiana. This will be the first time our band will be showcased in that region in over 20 years! We will be traveling to New Orleans April 28th-May 1st. As you know, it can be costly to move a large organization, so we need your help. All donations will be greatly appreciated as we embark on this adventure for our students. They will learn about the rich history of New Orleans, additionally, visit and tour prestigious HBCU “Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. While on campus, students will meet with the director of bands and university administrators to discuss scholarship opportunities.

Thank you for your continued support

Help spread the word!
