Community Pint Night at Keystone

Eventson February 2nd, 2017Comments Off on Community Pint Night at Keystone

Every Thursday night, Keystone Bar & Grill hosts Community Pint Night. When a guest purchases a pint of beer, they receive a wooden token in exchange. The guest can then deposit the token, valued at 25 cents, in the charity box of their choosing. At the end of each quarter, we tally up all of the tokens and present a check to each participating organization.

We have two standing charities, the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Cincinnati and the Freestore Foodbank. The third charity box rotates quarterly and we actively accept applications on a rolling basis.
