On Tuesday April 9th, 2013 the Guelph Young Professionals Network will be hosting “Food, Beer & Friends” a fundraiser for the Children’s Foundation of Guelph Wellington Food & Friends program. It will be held at Wellington Brewery (950 Woodlawn Rd W Guelph) from 5pm – 7pm. Space is limited, please register here if you are planning on attending.
We know that beer is as versatile as it is diverse, providing both complementary and contrasting experiences when paired with food. A few select restaurants will be creating a canapé that pairs specifically to one of the beers that Wellington Brewery has on tap.
This is going to be a fun and memorable event that raises the profile of good food and good beer while at the same time directing much needed funds to a local organization that does such great work.
The Guelph Young Professionals Network Program is geared to young entrepreneurs, professionals and senior college and university students. It is designed to raise the profile of young professionals and plug them into local business networks. It is meant for individuals under the age of 40, running a business or looking for organizational and personal development. Attendees take advantage of this opportunity to meet other young business leaders from the Guelph community to share ideas, get to know each other, help each other out and have some fun.
The Children’s Foundation of Guelph Wellington Food and Friends program supports local children through student nutrition programs. Their mission is to initiate, facilitate and support quality, sustainable student nutrition programs. They provide breakfast, lunch and snack programs for students in a supportive, nonjudgmental environment where they feel cared for and safe.
Carpooling and public transit is highly encouraged! Admission will be a donation to the Children’s Foundation (suggested $10.00). Beverages and canapes will be provided free of charge by the sponsors. Please drink responsibly. Again, space is limited, please register here if you are planning on attending.
