This has been a devastating year for a lot of people around the globe: victims of flooding in Texas, wildfires on the West Coast and hurricanes in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Americans rose to the occasion to help their fellow citizens across the country. But, we shouldn’t forget our neighbors—families living right here in the DC metro who are in need.

Many of you are by now no doubt familiar with WWPR’s pro bono client, Bright Beginnings, Inc. (BBI). This Giving Tuesday, WWPR is hosting a special happy hour event in partnership with Bar Louie to raise money for the group.

On November 28 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Bar Louie DC (701 7th Street NW), 20 percent of happy hour sales from WWPR and our guests will be donated to BBI. We will have the sidebar area—with its own full bar and menu—reserved for the event, and WWPR plans to provide some appetizers!

Our goal is to raise $200 for BBI, so the more the merrier! Come out and bring your friends, family, roommates, coworkers and/or significant others. There’s no admission fee for the event, but a flyer is required for entrance. You can download the flyer, which also includes details about the event, here.

We hope you’ll come out and join us to have some fun, meet some of the staff of BBI and support them in their wonderful work to encourage literacy in young children from underprivileged DC families!
