Come celebrate World Water Day with us on Friday, March 22nd, 2024! This year, we’re excited to both celebrate our achievements and take steps towards greater impact.

We’ll be at Black Button Distilling (1344 University Ave) from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM for an enjoyable and meaningful evening.

Enjoy delicious drinks and snacks in the Gin Garden, and join in on conversations about our clean water efforts in Uganda.

As a highlight of our evening, Jason Barrett (Owner, Black Button Distilling) and James Harrington (CEO/Founder, Ugandan Water Project) will introduce Black Button Gives Back. We’re excited to announce an upcoming bourbon collaboration that supports water projects in Uganda.

Your ongoing support is crucial to our mission of bringing clean water to communities in Uganda. With your help, we’re not only continuing our work but also aiming higher in 2024.

We can’t wait to see you there to both celebrate and share in the progress we’re making together!

Please RSVP on Facebook or LinkedIn to confirm your attendance.
