Booze for Brews – April 26

What’s better than a fun night out with fellow ECS parents and caregivers? One that also helps the teachers’ biggest wish come true: more coffee! The Staff Appreciation committee is hosting a cocktail party at the Wigle Whiskey Distillery in the Strip District on Friday, April 26th from 6 to 9 pm. 10% of all drink and bottle sales will go directly towards supplementing the ECS staff’s supply of coffee to help get them through the rest of the year. And I think we can all agree, they deserve it! Light snacks will be provided (and pretzels available for purchase from Axel’s Pretzels). Plus you’ll have a chance to win a bottle of delicious Wigle’s Coffee Liquor and two tour passes. So line up a sitter–or make it a girls’/guys’ night out–and please join us for this stimulating cause. RSVPs are helpful, but not required.
