The event is free to attend, and a portion of the proceeds from the evening’s beer specials will benefit Imagine Grinnell’s 2019 programs. Drawings for raffle prizes will be held throughout the evening, with chances to win a deluxe wellness package, a selection of wines, a CSA share, a gourmet selection of locally-raised meat, hand-made items by local artisans and much more.

In 2019, Imagine Grinnell will celebrate its 35th year of helping to make Grinnell a healthier and more sustainable community. IG has worked to increased access to healthy locally-grown food and outdoor activities, reduced our town’s environmental footprint through solar and energy efficiency programs, increased recycling and improved water-quality projects, to name just a few.

This year, staff and volunteers completed a three-year fundraising campaign for the new skatepark, hosted educational events and expanded the Giving Gardens. They are working with Ahrens Park to make the facilities more environmentally friendly, and held the area’s first gravel-riding bike tour, raising awareness of our bicycle-friendly community and attracting cyclists from across the region.

In 2019, we will be launching new initiatives, including an annual gravel-biking festival, new solar and recycling projects, expanded healthy food and outdoor activity programs, and much more.
