Bowties and Beers Fund-Raiser to Benefit Suit Up Springfield
SPRINGFIELD — White Lion Brewing Co. and the Student Prince will celebrate Suit Up Springfield’s first-year anniversary with a Bowties and Beers community-wide fund-raiser tonight, Nov. 13, at the Student Prince, 8 Fort St., Springfield.
The event, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., will feature a draft-beer lineup by White Lion, and the Student Prince will donate 10% of all food and beverage proceeds from the evening to Suit Up Springfield to supports its mission.
Suit Up Springfield was founded by Justin Roberts, Development officer at American International College, to promote self-sustainability among men seeking employment through the provision of interview attire and professional mentorship. Roberts recently completed his term as board president, and the board of directors will introduce its incoming president tonight.
Men’s professional clothing donations are encouraged, and can be made at the door of the event. All proceeds go directly to helping Suit Up Springfield continue to provide attire along with the personal and professional development and mentorship programs to Springfield men.
