Pints for Parks
Thanks to all who joined all the park (and beer!) enthusiasts at Pints for Parks at Orpheus Brewing on Tuesday, June 16 from 6-9pm, benefiting Park Pride’s Volunteer Program. We had a fun evening of tasting unique beers at Orpheus Brewing, enjoying the views of Piedmont Park from the patio, a silent auction, plus great company and networking with community members who love parks and volunteerism.
