Welcome to the 6th annual Good People Good Beer Gala!
This special evening directly benefits our primary-level school in Yida Refugee Camp, where we support 12 Sudanese teachers and nearly 1,000 children every day. Many of the students at our school in Yida have lost or been seperated from their parents due to the war they fled in Sudan.
Funds raised through the gala pay Sudanese teachers' salaries and provide school supplies throughout the year.
Your support at Good People Good Beer ensures that these teachers and children continue getting support in the months ahead. Register or donate today.

And there is always just the good old-fashioned donation that you can give by card. Your support empowers our life-changing education program in Yida Refugee Camp!
This Year's Theme: 1920's Speakeasy
This is a themed dress up event! You should arrive in 1920s speakeasy attire. Not exactly sure what that means? Check out our blogpost for dress attire ideas. No shorts, flip-flops, or t-shirts. Dress to the theme so you're not left out!
The styles of the 5 beers being tasted throughout the evening and music will also hail from the 1920s era. The event will be at The Propcellar, a beautiful vintage-themed warehouse on Summer Avenue in the heart of Memphis, TN. This year, there will be even more vintage furniture to fall in love with. You will also have the opportunity to see our breathtaking photos from Yida Refugee Camp, which show you exactly where your support is going!
