Beer and babies are two of life’s greatest things. On May 6 from 1 to 4 p.m., come out for the debut episode of 650,000 Hours—a new web series on the real-life heroes who make America great. Author and host Ken Budd will combine the two with a Beer and Babies Diaper Donation Party to benefit the DC Diaper Bank, one of the area’s most impressive charities.
The goal of the event is to break the diaper bank’s one-day donation record and raise money for families in need. The party will feature fun for kids, games for adults, food trucks, live music, brewery tours, raffles, and—best of all—beer! With the price of admission, attendees will receive raffle tickets for gifts from companies such as Mellow Mushroom, Paradise Springs winery and Republic Restoratives distillery, as well as signed books from local authors and much more.
Since 2010, the diaper bank has distributed more than 4.5 million diapers to families in need. Diapers are expensive, and in Washington, D.C., 44 percent of children under the age of three live in low-income families. The DC Diaper Bank’s amazing founder, Corinne Cannon, has been honored for her work on CNN, NPR, The Steve Harvey Show, and as one of L’Oréal’s 2014 “Women of Worth.”
The new web series 650,000 Hours is based on a simple premise: the average human life lasts 650,000 hours. How will you spend yours? To answer that, the series will spotlight the daring and daunting work of passionate Americans who are transforming communities and changing lives.
Tickets: $45 in advance ($25 of which is tax-deductible), $55 at the door, and includes food, one beer and raffle tickets. Location: DC Brau, 3178-B Bladensburg Rd. NE, Washington D.C. To buy tickets and learn more, visit BeerAndBabies.Eventbrite.com.
