Pints for Paws 2017

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

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.
