The Sprout for Kids Foundation’s Poses & Pints is looking for nonprofits in the La Crosse Area, to apply to partner in a local weekly fundraiser through yoga & beer throughout 2019-2020. 

For $10.00, and led by local yoga partners, participants to the weekly Saturday events can relax and refresh with this gentle yoga class in the warm, friendly and authentic atmosphere of The Pearl Street Brewery. All skill levels welcome for a flowing yoga class; and after class, participants can enjoy a pint with fellow yogis and friends (21+). 

Poses & Pints events, taking place at Pearl Street Brewery, have raised thousands of dollars for local charities. Since 2009 Pearl Street Brewery, in conjunction with On Three Printing and Design, has been raising funds for La Crosse area families, schools, and organizations through the Sprout for Kids Foundation, hitting over $30,000 raised for the community in 2018.  

Nonprofits who would like to become one of our fundraising partners would be required to share information about the event raising funds for your organization. Help us bring more people to your Poses and Pints fundraiser through your organization’s social media and e-newsletter channels.
