You drink beer. We give back!
All you have to do is drink beer! Each week we will have a different non-profit organization on site. They will receive 10% of our nightly sales and any cash donations collected in the tote bags at the end of the bar.
This week is sponsored by The Nest Atlanta. They have chosen Lost-N-Found Youth to work with and will be hanging out to provide guests with a free beer, while supplies last.
“Lost-n-Found Youth is the outgrowth of Saint Lost and Found, an LGBTQ homeless youth fund project of the Atlanta Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.
Founded by Rick Westbrook, Art Izzard, and Paul Swicord after each of them experienced being turned away when attempting to place queer youth into local shelters and youth aid programs, the three resolved that something needed to be done to address the immediate need.
They called a public town hall meeting and invited these local homeless youth support agencies to express outrage and determine what resources existed. The meeting made clear that no organization was specifically actively working to take LGBTQ homeless youth off the street. Rick, Art, Paul and others assembled in November 2011 with the support of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to establish a privately funded emergency shelter, and the Saint Lost and Found project (now Lost-n-Found Youth, Inc.) was born.”
