Fundraising for Mexico and Puerto Rico
October 6, 2017
Friday, October 6, 2017. 6-9 pm.
Fundraising event at Hopewell Brewery
2760 N. Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, Illinois 60647
On Friday, October 6, from 6 to 9 pm, please join MAS Context at Hopewell Brewery in Logan Square to drink and raise money for the relief efforts in Mexico and Puerto Rico. 20% of every purchase during that period of time will be donated to two organizations operating in Mexico and Puerto Rico.
In the last few weeks, Mexico and Puerto Rico have suffered major natural disasters. On September 19, on the 32nd anniversary of the devastating 1985 earthquake, a 7.1 magnitude earthquake killed 325 people in Mexico (as of September 25) and injured thousands more. Meanwhile, a few days after suffering the effects of Hurricane Irma, Puerto Rico was directly hit by Hurricane Maria, leaving the entire island without power and communications. On top of that, the Guajataca Dam has also suffered a critical infrastructure failure that could directly affect 70,000 people.
To help raise funds, MAS Context is collaborating with Hopewell Brewery and Mexican architect Michel Rojkind, who will be in attendance, to organize this event. Michel has been aiding in the recovery efforts in Mexico City and he will be able to share a firsthand experience of the situation. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the two organizations below:
Diego Luna + Gael García Bernal + Ambulante
Puerto Rico Real-Time Recovery Fund
If you can’t attend the event but you would like to support this important effort, you can make a donation on our support page. Please, indicate in your donation that funds are for the “Mexico and Puerto Rico Fundraising.” We’ll collect all donations until Sunday, October 15.
We are extremely thankful to Hopewell Brewery for hosting this fundraising and for being able to donate a portion of the sales.
