ANN ARBOR – The University of Michigan Gay and Lesbian Alumni Society will present a beer-tasting evening to benefit the Coalition for Adoption Rights Equality on Wednesday, April 9 at the Arbor Brewing Company.
C.A.R.E. fights for the right to secure families for our children through legal adoption in the state of Michigan.
The beer-tasting will take place from 6- 8 p.m.; tickets are $15 per person. Tickets include five beer samples and a light appetizer buffet. For those under the age of 21, the tickets are the same price for unlimited soft drinks.
Capacity is limited to 100. Ticket orders will be confirmed via email or phone. Reservations are first-come, first-served. You may also charge tickets by phone at (734) 763-9702.
The Arbor Brewing Company is located at 114 E. Washington St. in downtown Ann Arbor and will be featuring its own micro-brews for the event.
“There is great crossover in membership between the two groups, and that is partly the reason we chose C.A.R.E. as the event beneficiary,” said Juliet Rogers, past president of UMGALAS and member of C.A.R.E.
“Since three of our UMGALAS board members are parents, second-parent adoption is an issue that we have felt personally and that we recognize as an issue that is very important to many of the community members who usually attend our events.”
Rogers said that Arbor Brewing Company has a “big supporter” of the lgbt community and will also be making a donation to C.A.R.E.
