25th running of event hears ideas, initiatives to better community
LiveNF will hose its 25th Pints for Progress event from 6-8:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 21, at the DoubleTree by Hilton, 401 Buffalo Ave., Niagara Falls.
Pints for Progress is an event run by #LiveNF, where citizens hear project ideas from locals and groups of Niagara Falls that would benefit the city. Attendees pay $10 to enter the event ($5 for first-time attendees), which gets them a free glass of beer, food, live music by Chris & Zach, and open ears to hear proposed ideas. After all the projects are proposed, attendees get to vote on which one they believe is the best. The money raised from the event is granted to the victor of the presentations.
At a past Pints for Progress event, New York State Assemblyman Angelo Morinello praised what the outing does for Niagara Falls.
"It's the entire project that I'm impressed with," Morinello said. "It energizes the youth of the area and highlights and focuses creativity and in my mind, it brings people from different walks of life and different ages groups together for a common cause: the betterment of Western New York."
