What better way to celebrate Earth Day than by supporting Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC) while enjoying some food, beverages, and fun at the Empty Pint Taproom at Southern Tier Brewing Company.

Twenty percent of all food and beverage sales between 4 and 10 p.m. on Monday, April 22, will be donated to ACNC.

This is an Audubon Exclusive FUNdraiser event, so be sure to bring some cash to participate in the 50/50 drawings and raffle that will take place from 5 to 8 p.m. Raffle prizes are:

A Southern Tier Brewing Company Gift Basket that includes a $100 gift card in addition to some great STBC gear.

A Gardener’s Essentials Gift Basket that includes a two-hour garden consultation for your home provided by ACNC Director Leigh Rovegno and vouchers for ACNC’s upcoming Plant Exchange, in addition to must-have garden tools that Rovegno personally recommends for successful gardening.

Raffle tickets for both items go on sale at the Nature Center Monday, April 15. Winners will be announced at Southern Tier at 8 p.m. on April 22. Winners do not need to be present, but it is hoped that you will be.

Proceeds from this event will go toward providing materials and care for Audubon’s native tree arboretum and gardens. The Ted Grisez Arboretum is home to over 60 native trees, and the gardens feature native plants that are pollinator friendly.

Southern Tier Brewing Company is located at 2072 Stoneman Circle, Lakewood, N.Y. Check out The Empty Pint’s menu at stbcbeer.com/taprooms/lakewood.
