Chicago tax attorney Patrick T. Sheehan and his charity, Hops for Humanity, is proud to announce our latest donation to a local worthy nonprofit.
At our quarterly summer meeting in July 2017, we awarded a donation to the Ray Graham Association of Villa Park. The Ray Graham Association works to empower people with disabilities by fostering independence and support to 2,000 individuals and their families in DuPage County.
Our July meeting was held at Shoeless Joe’s Ale House & Grille in Addison, and the beer was provided by Scorched Earth Brewing Co. Founded by Michael and Jennifer Dallas, Scorched Earth uses only local ingredients and old world brewing techniques. They offered an incredible selection of craft beers for our members.
Hops for Humanity is a charity founded by and made up of lovers of local craft beer who meet quarterly to raise money for greater Chicagoland charities. At each event, committed Hops members submit eligible local charities, and everybody who attends the event can vote to help choose the winning charity. The money raised at each Hops event is donated to the charity selected that evening. To date, we have raised over $100,000 for local charities.
Through our events over the past three years we have donated to the following organizations:
Even though we’re just putting the finishing touches on our summer event, Hops for Humanity is already looking forward to our Autumn 2017 fundraiser. On Monday, Oct. 16, 2017, we’ll be at Skeleton Key Brewery located at 8102 Lemont Rd., Unit 300, Woodridge, IL. Skeleton Key is a local taproom and brewery incubator owned and operated by a brother, sister and husband team from Chicago’s western suburbs.
Registration for the Oct. 16, 2017, Hops for Humanity event will be open soon, and may be completed on the Hops for Humanity website. We hope to see you there.
