Thank you to everyone who came into the city for our Whiskey in the Water fundraiser at Wigle Whiskey! The Center for Coalfield Justice continues to raise funds so that we can invest in leadership development within our communities, continue to address the various environmental justice issues we face, and grow as an organization.
Wigle Whiskey generously donated about 10% of all proceeds from the evening - including drink, bottle, and merchandise sales - to CCJ through their Bantam Nights program. They do this kind of fundraiser for various groups in the area regularly, and they also host various fun events throughout the summer, so we highly suggest taking a look at their Facebook page to see what's coming up! Throughout the night, our Board and volunteers sold CCJ merchandise and talked with Wigle patrons about our work. Sweetheart of the Barricades played music for us throughout the night. Vagabond Taco Truck set up at the event for us so patrons could eat while drinking and being merry.
With the success of this first Pittsburgh fundraiser, we hope to make this a yearly event, and we hope to see everyone again next time!
