Drinking Summit beer for charity

The Minneapolis Rotaract Club hosted their first annual fundraiser at the Summit Brewery in St. Paul on Thursday, March 18 to benefit a women's facility in Managua, Nicaragua. Over 100 Rotaracters, Rotarians and other guests gathered for locally brewed Summit beer, a mashed potato & beef buffet with a dessert bar, silent auction and $5 red brick donation board. It was a smashing success and someone had to help drink that beer!

  1. Nice.
    I had to google Rotaract. Guess I've been away from America for too long.

  3. Rotaract is similar to Rotary but it is meant for young people ages 18 - 30. It is part of the Rotary International "big picture." Hopefully, Rotaracters will someday become Rotarians!

  4. Rotary starts them young - learning how to eat and drink!

    Question: You would prefer to be photographed in your birthday suit?

    Is it true you asked the cop to hold your beer while you fished out your license after being stopped on the way home?
    The inquiring mind of «Louis la Vache» wants to know...
