The Midlands donating all profits on Monday to Latin American Youth Center

This is pretty cool: The Midlands, the beer garden at 3333 Georgia, will be donating all profits made on Monday to the Latin American Youth Center, which works with low-income youngsters and families through cultural, educational and skills programming. Their work includes tutoring, arts, health, housing and job skills, among others, and serves a large and diverse group of people.

Here's more from the Midlands, and they also have a Facebook event invite.
In honor of President's Day The Midlands will be donating 100% of profits from the entire day to the Latin American Youth Center of Washington DC.

Their mission is to empower a diverse population of youth to achieve a successful transition to adulthood through multi-cultural, comprehensive, and innovative programs that address youths’ social, academic, and career needs. 
Since their founding in the late 1960s, LAYC has grown from a small grassroots recreation center to a nationally recognized agency serving all low-income youth. Each year LAYC serves over 4,000 youth and families through youth centers, school-based sites, and public charter schools in the District of Columbia and Maryland’s Prince George’s and Montgomery Counties as the Maryland Multicultural Youth Centers (MMYC).

They believe in a future where all youth pursue their dreams, reach their goals, and acquire the skills and self-confidence to live a life of purpose, connection, contribution, and joy. 
So come join us for what is starting to look like a beautfiul, 65 degree feburary day and lets raise a whole lotta movey to help the future of our nation by enjoying beer with your friends and family in the sunshine. Remember, nothing beats day-drinkin' unless it's day-drinkin' for good casue. See you MONDAY!
