On Wednesday, May 15th, join the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation and local nonprofit organizations at Brazil Craft Beer and Wine for Drafts for Cash.

From 4p.m. – midnight, the owners of Brazil have generously agreed to donate 25% of its food and drink sales to the Community Foundation to be used as cash prize incentives for the upcoming online giving day Give Big CHQ.

“This event will be a great way to kick off the official countdown to Give Big CHQ,” said Liz Jones, CRCF research and engagement associate. “This year we have over 75 nonprofits participating this is a wonderful opportunity to come together and celebrate the work they do in our community.”

Community Foundation staff will be at Brazil from 5-8 p.m. with more information about this year’s giving day event, giving away doors prizes to both nonprofit organizations and attendees along with some fun promotions like the Give Big CHQ selfie wall.

“We want to get the community involved in Give Big,” Jones said. “This is just another way for people to help support their favorite nonprofit organizations, while also supporting a fantastic local business.”
