Pints for Progress No. 27 will take place at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 26. The event will be held inside Gadawski’s Restaurant, 1445 Falls St., Niagara Falls. Zak Ward is the musical guest.
For a $10 fee, guests can look forward to food, drinks and the chance to vote for/present a community improvement project. Ticket proceeds go to the project with the most votes.
A press release explained, “ ‘P4P’ is all about getting the community together and finding creative ways to accomplish more in our city. Gadawski’s is a local classic, and we are excited to be adding their famous pierogi to our pairing of pints and progress.”
Pints for Progress was launched in 2013 in a local parking lot, as a community event meant to help improve the City of Niagara Falls. It has grown to become a community highlight and a source of funding for local projects.
The meals and drinks are always donated, either by individuals or businesses/organizations that are supportive of the concept. After everyone has had a chance to eat and socialize, attendees are invited to present a project idea to the group. There are no limitations on the types of projects presented.
Once all those interested have pitched their ideas, each attendee votes on the project idea they favored the most, with the highest vote-getter taking home all funds collected at the door.
