A great day for the Urban Bike Project of Wilmington and one of Delaware’s beloved breweries!
Dogfish Head Brewery and the Movies on Tap team and recently presented a check for $10,640 to Urban Bike Project to help lower-income youth who love to bike ride but can’t always afford the equipment or repairs. They also support Wilmington communities by providing access to bicycling as a healthy, affordable, and practical means of transportation and recreation.
As the largest, single Movies-on-Tap fundraiser to date, the donation came from the 2018 season finale featuring the 1989 classic film, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and beer from Dogfish Head Brewery and Breakthru Beverage Group. A record number of more than 600 people attended the sold-out season finale, which filled seven theaters.
With this past Friday’s event, the Movies on Tap campaign has helped raise more than $110,000 for local nonprofits.
Movies on Tap is a monthly, interactive tasting series that features meet-and-greet tasting opportunities with local brewers and brewery representatives while providing a rare opportunity to view cult-classic films on the big screen. Tickets cost $20 and include a movie, beer samples, and popcorn — with 100% of proceeds (ticket sales) benefiting brewer’s charity of choice.
This month Movies on Tap is celebrating Women’s History Month by showing “9 to 5,” featuring Iron Hill Brewery (and female lead brewer from Wilmington Riverfront location, Moriah Guise) to benefit the Junior League Wilmington. Show date: March 28th, 6:30 pm. Tickets on sale this week.
