Our fourth annual Hops for Hope will take place April 3, 2010 from 1 pm to 5 pm at the Corner Brewery in Ypsilanti.
Tickets are $20 and include a beer-tasting from 2 pm to 4 pm, chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate, organic fair-trade coffee, and a vegetarian appetizer buffet. Our silent auction will feature Easter baskets filled with organic, fair-trade chocolates and other goodies. Non-drinking tickets are $10, and children under 12 get in free! (Please note, you must be 21 years old to consume alcohol. Tickets will not be sold at the door.)
Hops for Hope centers around the www.makeminechocolate.com campaign, which seeks to break the cycle of acquisition and relinquishment by educating the public about the responsibilities involved in keeping a companion rabbit before a rabbit is brought home. This year we have sought out chocolate from small, independent chocolatiers, as well as from big, well known companies, and the result is an amazing and eclectic mix of organic, fair-trade, and hand-made chocolates!
All proceeds benefit the 300+ rabbits we rescue each year.
