Diamond Bar is doing their annual Brew n’ Chew event again and this time it’s benefiting a cause close to my heart – The Greenpoint YMCA Strong Kids Campaign! Diamond Bar is donating 90% of their proceeds to the campaign.
Contributions to the YMCA’s annual Strong Kids Campaign ensure that no child or family is turned away from life-enhancing YMCA programs because of the inability to pay. Each year, the Greenpoint YMCA provides financial assistance to hundreds of local youth and families in need. These requests are now rising to unprecedented levels. The Greenpoint YMCA, through its annual fund-raising, wants to be there to meet them.
You can donate directly to the Greenpoint YMCA Strong Kids Campaign here.
And you should also check out Diamond Bar’s Brew n’ Chew 3!
