A lot of food- and drink-related benefits and fundraisers are happening this week, and what’s easier than supporting a local nonprofit by getting a tasty bite to eat or a cold beer? On Thursday, March 22, The Bier Stein (1591 Willamette Street) is hosting a benefit for McKenzie River Trust. $1 from every Ninkasi pint sold will benefit the nonprofit, and The Bier Stein will match the amount up to $500. You’ll have opportunities to win swag, and custom Ninkasi hats are available for a donation of $5. That event is from 5-8 pm. That same night Sam Bond’s Brewing Co. (540 East 8th Avenue) is hosting a benefit for Healthy Moves called Grassroots to the Blues, including a raffle and live music. It’s from 6-9 pm. The next evening, Friday, March 23, 6th Street Grill (55 West 6th Avenue) is hosting a fundraiser for Oregon Horse Rescue. The founders of the rescue will be at the event for patrons to meet and learn about the organization. Twenty percent of food and drink sales from the evening will be donated to the nonprofit. That event is from 5:30-9 pm. For even more benefits and fundraisers this week, see the full calendar.
