On Wednesday March 8, 2017, Columbus Coalition of Reason (CoR) sponsored a Charity Fundraiser Happy Hour at Seventh Son Brewing Company in Italian Village, north of Downtown Columbus, to benefit the Mid-Ohio Foodbank. Twenty people from multiple Columbus CoR groups showed up to support the local charity and the local brewery and raised $220. This fun event again paired great conversations with some of the best local craft beer in Central Ohio.
Land Grant Brewing originally approached Columbus CoR about doing a similar event and Seventh Son is one of the breweries that we wanted to do the same thing with. Seventh Son and Land Grant both are two of the many local breweries that have worked with Columbus CoR on charity events in the past and hopefully the future.
Columbus CoR is working with other local breweries to do similar events and will hold an event celebrating The National Day of Reason at The Actual Brewing Company on Saturday May 6, 2017. RSVP on Facebook or on Meetup with Central Ohio United Non-Theists (COUNT) or Omnipresent Atheists (OA).
Two Central Ohio United Non-Theists (COUNT) members arranged the event for Columbus CoR and member groups COGA, COUNT and OA advertised it building on the annual Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM) Benefit Dinner’s success in helping the foodbank. Columbus CoR has now raised $11,356.37 and collected 1,510 lbs of food for the Mid-Ohio Foodbank since 2012.
The next Columbus CoR event is this Thursday’s Bleed-N-Feed where Red Cross blood donation is followed by dinner at a local restaurant with fellow Humanists. COUNT collects and reports results to Foundation Beyond Belief to publicize non-theist charitable efforts and improve the reputations of humanists and atheists. RSVP with the Humanist Community of Central Ohio (HCCO) or COUNT for March 16 and HCCO or COUNT for May 18.
COUNT, COGA, HCCO and OA are members of the Columbus Coalition of Reason.
