Join Richmond Promise on Thursday, March 30 for the return of our Cheers to the Promise fundraiser at East Brother Beer Company! During the event, a portion of proceeds from beer sales made in the taproom will be donated to Richmond Promise. Support from East Brother and their customers will benefit higher education access and success services for Richmond youth.

Drink award winning beer and help young people from Richmond earn postsecondary degrees and certificates. It doesn’t get much easier than that!
