GALION — The 1803 Taproom, 123 Harding Way East, will host its first “Pints for a Purpose” event Friday, Oct. 7, beginning at 5 p.m.
The fundraiser will benefit Galion Public Library.
“Pints for a Purpose” is a program to help support Galion and Crawford County non-profit organizations.
The idea is one the taproom’s owner found through social media.
“I saw this event with an Ohio craft brewery on Facebook, and they were donating a percentage of sales to their local elementary school PTO,” said Eighteen-O-Three Taproom owner Chris Stone. “We have been incredibly blessed with outstanding community support, and this is just one way we can show our gratitude.”
The event will end at 9 p.m., and Stone will present a check to the library for 15 percent of his business’ gross sales shortly after that time.
Representatives from the library will be at the the fundraiser to promote the library and its programs.
“This is the first fundraising event like this for us , and we’re excited the library has agreed to partner with us,” said Stone. “Galion Public Library is a vitally important resource for our community, and I hope everyone from Galion and Crawford County will come out and enjoy a pint of Ohio craft beer to help us give back.”
