Natural Awakenings Milwaukee

Popular Holiday Pub Crawl Benefitting Local Charities Returns

The 12 Bars of Charity pub crawl, an event that helps raise money and build awareness for local charities, will take place throughout Milwaukee on December 20. Registration starts at $30.95, $15 of which goes to the Charity Team of choice. Participants also receive a Charity Team sweatshirt, shuttle pass and drink specials at the 12 participating bars. Check-in begins at 7 p.m. at a to-be-determined location. The pub crawl starts at 8 p.m. and runs until midnight.

People can register online and select to join one of eight charity teams: Hunger Task Force; Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Wisconsin; Alzheimer’s Association; Wisconsin Humane Society; Feeding America; Best Buddies; Broadscope Disability Services; or The Autism Society of Southeastern Wisconsin. There’s also an Ultimate Giver option, which disperses funds evenly to all participating charities.

There is no start or end location for the pub crawl, so participants may start at any bar or restaurant of choice. The shuttles run a continuous loop around the bars. One must have the Charity Team sweatshirt to ride the shuttle and receive drink specials. 12 Bars of Charity originally began in 2012 in Clayton, Missouri, and has since expanded to more than 15 cities throughout the United States.
