As part of its year-round “Be An Angel” program, Angel City Brewery will kick off monthly neighborhood cleanups, starting with Venice, this Sat. Jan. 25 from 12 – 3 p.m.
Participants will meet at Danny’s Venice, 23 Windward Avenue. For details go here.
The brewery is inviting fans, friends, employees and good Samaritans of all stripes to join in cleaning up different neighborhoods all around Los Angeles.
On a weekend-day each month participants will gather at a local bar or restaurant in the neighborhood, be given a volunteer t-shirt, pair of gloves, trash bags and a trash picker. The group will help beautify the community, and then gather back at the bar for tasty bites and cold beer -- a great way to do some good while getting to know LA’s diverse neighborhoods.
“We are so thrilled to be thriving in Los Angeles,” said Marketing Manager Emily Hope. “It is only right that we actually participate in our community and give back as much as we can. By making it fun for our friends and fans, we try to instill a philosophy of philanthropy that makes doing good feel great.”
In addition to the Clean Ups, the Be An Angel program includes a six-month long campaign beginning in February through which Angel City guests are asked if they could donate $200 to a non-profit of their choice – which would it be, and why. Each month Angel City will choose one answer at random, and donate $200 to the charity of their choice. The winning entrant will also win a VIP brewery tour led Brewer Dieter Foerstner. To submit an entry, visit angelcitybrewery.com/BeAnAngel starting February 1.
February is also National Cancer Awareness Month and the brewery is supporting the “Keep Abreast” organization. They’ll be kicking off the partnership with a brand new mural painting on Rose Street in Venice, along with a new art exhibit opening Feb. 14. Throughout the entire month, Angel City will be donating $1 from the sale of every pink pomegranate and blue raspberry Berliner Weisse sold in the Public House (the pink and blue of the syrup represent Keep Abreast’s colors).
