Big Day of Giving and GivingEdge Together at Last!
Big Day of Giving is a 24-hour online giving challenge that brings together the region's nonprofit community to help raise much needed unrestricted funds and shine a spotlight on the work nonprofits do to make the Sacramento region the place we call home. GivingEdge is the region's local source for comprehensive nonprofit information and year-round giving.
For the past few years, the Big Day of Giving and GivingEdge have worked in unison to unite our community, raising more than $16 million for local nonprofits and providing donors the opportunity to learn more about the causes they care about. These two resources are now here in one convenient location, giving donors a one stop shop for learning and giving!
Big Day of Giving is an opportunity for donors to show their community pride and support the nonprofits that make our region great, and it is also a year-long capacity building program that helps local nonprofits hone their skills in marketing, social media, and board and donor engagement. Each time a participating nonprofit puts these skills to work throughout the year, we consider Big Day of Giving a success!
The Sacramento Master Singers are thrilled to partner with UC Davis Professor Dr. Charlie Bamforth in offering this unique fundraising event. First, guests will receive a master class in beer tasting from the world-renowned "Pope of Foam," Dr. Charlie Bamforth. Using his own samples as well as examples from our host, Track 7, Dr. Bamforth will explain how different ingredients, brewing methods, and storage all lead to the wide variety of tastes available at local stores and breweries. Charlie is equal parts comedian and lecturer, so you can anticipate cabaret as much as classroom. Afterward, guests are invited to take a 15-minute tour of the brewery and see up close how beer is produced. Each ticket purchased includes a voucher for a full pint of one of Track 7's fine seasonal beers and a $10 voucher to dine at a food truck after the event.
Don't miss this opportunity to learn from a local treasure trove of brewing knowledge, mingle with members of the choir in a relaxed (and decidedly non-choral) setting, and drink some fine beverages. We look forward to seeing you there!
