Pints 4 Paws 2018

Burger Antics is hosting its 2nd Annual Pints 4 Paws Charity Fundraiser!

On Sunday, June 10th, from Noon till 8pm, we'll be rotating through 30 of the rarest beers we could get our hands on and selling raffle tickets for gift baskets put together by some of our friends including breweries, local artists, and more!

We're working with The Safe Haven Network to help end domestic violence, one beer at a time! Through partnerships with local animal shelters, The SHN finds temporary “safe havens” where domestic violence victims can board their pets while they complete a stay in a domestic violence shelter. They recognize that a victim’s decision to leave an abusive situation begins an incredibly stressful and dangerous period of his or her life. This is the worst time to add on the stress of giving up a beloved pet, or worse, leaving that beloved pet with the abuser, who has likely already threatened or abused the pet as well.

100% of funds raised from the raffle and 30% of beer sales will go to The Safe Haven Network!

We really hope to make a difference in the lives of people dealing with domestic violence, so please share this event with your friends and stay tuned for updates on beers and raffle items. We look forward to seeing you at the event!

Pints for Paws 2017

Join us at Burger Antics for a truly spectacular fundraiser!

On Sunday, June 11, from noon until 8:00 p.m., we'll be rotating through 20 of the rarest beers we could get our hands on and selling raffle tickets for gift baskets put together by some of our friends including breweries, local artists, and more!

100% of the funds raised from the raffle and 20% of the beer sales will go to The Safe Haven Network!

For a minimum donation of $35, Burger Antics and The Safe Haven Network have decided to open the doors an hour early for an epic Bottle Share!

In addition to trying a bunch of awesome beers and helping out an amazing organization, you'll get the first crack at our 12:00 pm tappings, including Goose Island Proprietor's Bourbon County Brand Stout 2016, AND your first beer is on us!

As for Bottle Share etiquette, everyone attending should bring one or two nicer bottles of beer to share with everyone else, and a taster glass or two if you have them.  We'll have some tables set up and if the bottle hits the table, it's up for grabs.  If you have something really special, feel free to hang onto it, but remember to share the love!

For more information, check out the Facebook event here.

SHN Onboarding Volunteer Training

  • 1615 W. Chicago Avenue, LL032 Chicago, IL (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Safe Haven Network needs volunteers to go to domestic violence agencies and animal shelters to train our partners on how to register on and use the secure online portal. Onboarding Volunteers will spend one day learning about the referral program and the secure online portal. Then teams of two or more Onboarding Volunteers will schedule sessions with our partners around the city. In these sessions, volunteers will train new users on how The Safe Haven Network's Referral Program works, how to use the secure online portal to access the Referral Program, and how to register users on the secure online portal. We plan to start scheduling these on-site training sessions in the new year.

 

You will need to check in with security before going downstairs to the training.
