Stella Artois’ and Water.org’s “Buy a Lady a Drink" Campaign
at Green Drinks
Thursday, April 16, 2015
5:30 - 7:30 p.m.
Annapolis Maritime Museum
723 Second Street, Annapolis
where Second Street Meets Back Creek
April 6, 2015 -- This month’s Green Drinks, on April 16 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., will be held at the Annapolis Maritime Museum, 723 Second Street, with a theme of “It’s All About the Water.” The event, in partnership with Katcef Brothers, will highlight the importance of clean water in a local and global context, just days before the 45th annual Earth Day.
Locally, the focus will be on the importance of protecting the waters of Chesapeake Country to the area’s ecology and heritage and how everyone can do his or her part. Annapolis Green will introduce the now-forming Back Creek Conservancy and encourage people to join the effort so Back Creek, where the Museum is located, will have a group of people speaking on its behalf and undertaking projects to improve its health.
In a global sense, the event will launch the “Buy a Lady a Drink” with Stella Artois and water.org -- a campaign to drive awareness of the global water crisis and help provide solutions. Every day, women around the world spend a combined 200 million hours collecting clean water for their families. “Buy a Lady a Drink” aims to help put a stop to these water-collecting journeys, so women can start new journeys of their own. More information is available at http://www.BuyALadyADrink.com.
Stella Artois recently made a donation of $1.2 million to Water.org and is now inviting the public to join the cause by purchasing limited-edition Chalices. One Chalice will help Water.org provide five years of clean water to one person in the developing world. The three unique and beautifully designed Chalices were inspired by traditional handcrafted objects from three of the developing countries where Water.org operates, including textiles from India, baskets from Ethiopia and pottery from Honduras. The Chalices can be purchased at Green Drinks or via Amazon.com. A short video about the campaign will be shown during Green Drinks.
Admission is by a donation of $10 to Green Drinks at the door. “Green Drinkers” will enjoy complimentary Stella Artois, Stella Cidre, wines, and soft drinks as well as delicious appetizers from Baroak Cookhouse and Taproom (located in the Loews Annapolis Hotel) and Julie St. Marie Catering/Event Coordination. Guests will leave with a complimentary Stella Artois Chalice Keepsake, while supplies last.
