Gone are the days when philanthropy meant big-wigs handing over ridiculously large checks to organizations for staged photo ops. There are a variety of ways to contribute to worthy causes, and you needn't be uber-wealthy to help out. Though fun runs are good exercise, perhaps one of the most fun ways to do something good can be found at Payette Brewing Co.
Payette regularly hosts its Kegs4Kause evenings, during which it donates half of the cash spent on its beer to a different organization. Today's recipient is the Middle Snake group of the Sierra Club. So if you really like trees and want to help the people who advocate for nature, drink up.
Savor an Outlaw IPA or Mutton Buster Brown from 5-10 p.m., and your buzz will come from knowing that you did something good. And maybe a little from the alcohol.
