Fishpaws Marketplace supports local charities in a unique way. For many years, they had offered free weekly beer, wine and spirit tastings to customers.
September 2011, due to Maryland liquor licensing rules, they were no longer allowed to do that. The staff decided to turn a negative into a positive by no longer having free tastings, but by allowing customers to “pay” for their tasting with a donation to a monthly local charity.
The management team chooses the charity and customers donate any amount they feel comfortable with for their tastings.
Fishpaws then matches all customers’ donations. Fishpaws has raised on average between $5,000 and $6,000 annually for local charities with these tastings.Visit Event Website for More Info
