Rubicon hosting fundraiser for group trying to save park system

By Niesha Lofing

Eat, drink and be philanthropic.

That's the goal of Rubicon Brewing Company's weekly "501(c) Wednesdays," which this week will feature the Grassroots Working Group, a nonprofit dedicated to saving the Sacramento's regional parks, including the American River Parkway.

The group, a sub-organization of the Save the American River Association (SARA) formed last year in response to budget cuts that could threaten the county's regional parks and open space system, according to the association's website.

Grassroots Working Group is trying to secure stable, long-term funding for operations, maintenance and expansion of the parks and open space system.

The midtown brewery will donate a portion of the day's profits to the group, and volunteers will be at Rubicon during the all-day event to answer questions about the group and its efforts.

The fundraiser will be held from 11 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. Wednesday at Rubicon Brewing Company, 2400 Capitol Ave., Sacramento.
