Several local businesses located in the Mall, together with a Julian -based microbrewery, have teamed up to sponsor the second annual Pints 4 the Park fundraiser for Anza-Borrego Foundation, the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park's official partner.

The event will be held Borrego Days Weekend, Saturday October 21 from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m., at the Mall plaza, outside Borrego Outfitters & Carmelita's. An expected 300 attendees will enjoy a pint of craft beer from Nickel Beer Company, some tasty snacks from Carmelita's, and some good conversation and camaraderie with fellow outdoor-minded folk.

Sponsored by Mall businesses Borrego Outfitters, Carmelita's and Fredericks Ancient & Ethnic Art, as well as Julian's Nickel Beer Company, all proceeds will go to Anza-Borrego Foundation and its mission to support the Park.

"We are pleased to sponsor this ABF fundraising event," said Ben Nourse, co-owner of Borrego Outfitters. "ABF plays an important role as ambassador to Anza Borrego Desert State Park and in enhancing the visitor experience in Borrego."

Local businesses provide an important means of support for non-profits like the Anza Borrego Foundation.

"It's wonderful to not only have the support of over 1,800 ABF members but to have the community behind the work we are doing," says Sara Husby, Executive Director of the ABF. "We are so grateful to Borrego Outfitters, Carmelita's and Fredericks Ancient & Ethnic Art for hosting this fun event. And we can't say thank you enough to the Borrego Springs Chamber and Visitor's Bureau for including Pints 4 the Park on the official Borrego Days schedule of events."

Tickets for Pints 4 the Park are $15 and include a commemorative steel pint, a one pint pour of Nickel Beer and appetizers from Carmelita's Mexican Grill & Cantina.

Tickets can be purchased online at the ABF website (http://www.theABF.org/Pints4Park) or stop by the Borrego Outfitters store. Tickets are limited, so get yours early!
