St. Paddy's Day Pub Crawl To Benefit Northside Neighborhood House

Monday, February 24, 2014

ChattaCrawl, Inc., a local organization that throws "parties with a purpose," is hosting a St. Paddy’s Day Pub Crawl to benefit the Northside Neighborhood House.

The event will take place on March 15 starting at 5 p.m. The crawl will feature four pubs---The Flying Squirrel Bar, Terminal Brewhouse, The Social, and The Honest Pint, and will conclude with a block party on Patten Parkway.  If participants visit each of the pubs involved, they will have a chance to win a "Pot O' Gold" at the end of the night.

Ticket prices are $25 and include a $5 gift certificate to each pub, free entry into the block party, a 10 percent discount to Northside Neighborhood House thrift stores, and some St. Paddy’s Day gear. 

For five years, Chattanooga has been home to the Santa Claus Pub Crawl, which collects toys for the Salvation Army.  “Due to the success of the Santa Claus Pub Crawl, we thought it made sense to put together a similar event for St. Paddy’s Day," says one of the founders of ChattaCrawl and the Santa Pub Crawl. "We are so excited to provide a portion of the proceeds from the event to the Northside Neighborhood House, because it is such a wonderful organization helping those in need in our community.”

Northside Neighborhood House serves the community through three programs:  Emergency Direct Assistance, Education for Children and Adults, and two Thrift Stores.   The Emergency Direct Assistance program provides financial help with utilities, food, and prescriptions, as well as budgeting and direct referrals to other agencies in the community.  Education programming includes after-school and summer tutoring and enrichment programs for elementary, middle and high school students, basic education help for adults with the goal of obtaining their GED and enrichment programs for seniors and adults.  Needed clothing, furniture, and other items are provided to residents, free of charge or at a minimal cost through the Thrift Stores.

Exempt Volunteer Fire Departments From Procurement Policies - And Response (2)

The Hamilton County Commission just grouped a bunch of departments together in an attempt to reign in the CVB. I haven't spoken to any commissioners, but I truly believe it was unknowingly. By mandating that all non profits that receive 25 percent of their revenue follow county procurement policies, they might as well have padlocked all local volunteer fire departments. We expect ...
