Drafts for a Difference

On the first Wednesday of each month, Athens Sunrise Rotary, organizes a community happy hour that benefits a worthy cause at the Pigskin Bar and Grille. This generous local establishment donates $1 for each beer sold. Athens Sunrise Rotary will also match each donation – so that means for each beer purchased – $2 will go to the charity of the month!

2023/2024 Charity Partners include: Friends of the Shelter Dogs, Bringing Up Babies with Books Program, Polio Plus, Athens County Community Singers, Athens Photo Project, Bailey’s Trail System, League of Women Votes, Safe Swim for All, Appalachian Children Coalition, Athens CASA/GAL Program, Alexander Inclusive Playground Project.
