PITTSBURG, KS.--- The "Raise Your Glass for Balkans" fundraiser is being held tomorrow night at Bourbon Street on Broadway in Pittsburg. For $25, people can taste and learn about eight different craft beers. The event was created by Pittsburg State professors who wanted to raise awareness for the recent disasters that took place in the Balkans region this spring. Donations made will go through Pitt State, to the International Red Cross, and then directed towards the Balkan relief effort.
"This is not a pub crawl. This is coming out, really learning about beer, tasting the beer and it's for a great cause. So really, we want to get people out and get them involved," said Tim Dawsey, PSU Sr. Research Associate.
Those attending will be able to keep their drinking glass used during the tasting. Only 48 seats are available for the Raise Your Glass for Balkans event, which kicks off at 6 p.m. tomorrow.
