The Mentoring Partnership of Minnesota (MPM) & NorthGate Brewing present "Drink for a Cause" on Wednesday, September 28th from 6 PM - 9 PM.

"Drink for a Cause" is the perfect opportunity to gather your friends & colleagues for a Happy Hour at a local brew-pub & benefit a worthy nonprofit in the bargain. Join MPM staff & Board Members for an evening of socializing, a silent auction, & good beer.

Northgate Brewing's "Drink for a Cause" donates a portion of the evening's sales to non-profits. In order for MPM to receive this donation, NorthGate Brewing must sell 100 pints the evening of September 28th. So be sure to bring lots of thirsty friends!
