“What Do We Do Now?”—Brews & Views, Thursday

Press release

By on Mon, November 29, 2010

On Thursday, December 2, the Brewing Company welcomes special guest Emmett Carson, Ph.D., CEO and President of the Silicon Valley Community Foundation. An internationally recognized philanthropic leader for more than two decades, Dr. Carson is responsible for providing the vision for one of the largest community foundations in the United States with assets of $1.7 billion.

Dr. Carson will be joined by special guest moderator Mark Battey for a compelling discussion about post-election California as it heads into 2011. With the federal government in retreat, the state budget in disaster and counties and cities in crisis, urgent questions are being asked about the future of local communities. What happens to safety nets? What is the role of philanthropy, and what can and can’t it accomplish? Are non-profits, community and faith groups able to step in and meet the community’s needs?

Brews and Views is the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company’s regular series tackling public issues that affect us all, from California to Washington, DC. Founded by Lenny Mendonca, the founder of the Brewing Company and Director at McKinsey & Company, Brews and Views serves as both public forum and fundraiser for Coastside non-profit organizations.

Ten percent of proceeds from all dinner sales at Half Moon Bay Brewing Company that evening will be donated to Cabrillo Education Foundation.

Thursday, December 2
6 to 8 p.m.

The Half Moon Bay Brewing Company
390 Capistrano Road, Princeton-by-the-Sea, Calif.

Admission and snacks are complimentary. Beer, wine and other beverages will be available for sale at the event.
