News Release

January 28, 2015  – Sacramento-area young professionals can enjoy trivia and beer while raising money to increase access to healthy drinking water at Sacramento elementary schools. United Way Young Leaders Society’s Brews & Brains will take place 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Feb. 25 at Yolo Brewing Company, 1520 Terminal Street, West Sacramento. Guests will enjoy rounds of trivia and beer, food from Fusion Eatz food truck, networking, music and more. Tickets are $20 and guests must be age 21 or older.

“This is a great opportunity to come out and have some fun while networking and helping local kids get healthier by drinking more water,” said Dustin Humes, chair, United Way Young Leaders Society.

The event raises funds for United Way Young Leaders Society’s Hydration Station Initiative, which will fund the purchase and installation of hydration stations in target schools, provide every student at the school with a reusable water bottle, and educate students on the importance of drinking water and using water resources wisely during the California drought.

Thirty-two percent of youth in the region are overweight or obese so United Way California Capital Region and its partners are working to reduce the number of overweight people in the region by 20 percent. To assist in reaching this goal, the United Way Young Leaders Society is focusing on ensuring students have access to water as a healthy beverage, and education about why water is such a valuable resource to protect. The group’s goal is to raise $25,000 for the project in 2015. To make a donation or to join United Way Young Leaders Society, visit www.yourlocalunitedway.org/young-leaders-society .
