Winter Gathering at Lagunitas


On December 15, 2015, Pratham Chicago Young Professionals Group hosted a winter gathering at the TapRoom at Lagunitas Brewing Company. More than 50 people came out for this evening of food, music, craft beer and networking with peers.

Lagunitas generously donated the net proceeds from the night’s beer sales to Pratham’s Second Chance program, which provides access to secondary education for female dropouts in India’s underserved communities. Since initiating this program, we have re-engaged over 16,000 dropouts in learning, thus improving their prospects for obtaining a diploma, higher education and employment. Learn more about the Pratham girls’ education program.

Guests were entertained by the music of Chris Buehrle, who performed an intimate solo show filled with original songs and fan favorites. Local supporter David Barton Gym raffled off a FitBit and two personal training packages.
