special events for individuals with intellectual disabilities group gathering

Posted on Jul 29, 2015


Things were “hops’ing” at 612Brew in Nordeast Minneapolis the evening of July 20 when Rise hosted our first-ever Tapping Into Possibilities “friend-raiser.” More than 170 people came to support Rise and enjoyed music from Battlelegs (who donated their time and talent!), good food, great beer, terrific raffle prizes (donated by many generous area businesses) — as well as conversation with lots of really nice guests!

If you were there, thanks so much for coming and we hope you had a good time. If you weren’t able to make it, we plan to make this an annual summer event. We hope you can join us July 18, 2016, at Bauhaus Brew Labs in Nordeast!


Big thanks to 612Brew for all their help in making this such a fun event. We also send a special shout-out to Victory Auto and Glass in Fridley and Spring Lake Park Lumber Co. for their generous sponsorships. Check out some photos of the evening on Rise’s Flickr page:
