‘Cheers to Education!’ has glass-half-full approach to college

AUSTIN (KXAN) — When it comes to helping students get to college amid financial barriers, Education First approaches the sometimes-challenging task with a positive approach: glass half-full.

Fittingly, the organization is aiming to fill that glass with the help of the “Cheers to Education! Beer Tasting and Auction” event Saturday from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Austin Beerworks. Tickets for the scholarship fundraising event can be bought online.

Staffed 100 percent by volunteers, Education First provides college scholarships to low-income youth, and that means the organization’s funds go directly to students.

About the event

Come out for a night of craft beer, BBQ and live music in support of Education First!

  • $10 gift cards to Whole Earth Provisions Co. included with each ticket
  • Sample BBQ from Micklethwait Craft Meats, craft brews from Austin Beerworks, cheese pairings from Whole Foods and iced coffee from Cuvee. Music by the Ben Baxter Band
  • Bring a friend and bid on silent and live auction items at every price range, including some great packages from Antonelli’s Cheese Shop, Austin Film Festival, Uchi, Justine’s and more
