Friday, October 6, 2017. 6-9 pm.
Fundraising event at Hopewell Brewing Co.
2760 N. Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, Illinois 60647


On Friday, October 6, from 6 to 9 pm, please join MAS Context at Hopewell Brewing Co. in Logan Square to 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 Brewing Co. 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 Brewing Co. for hosting this fundraising and for being able to donate a portion of the sales.
