Cups With A Purpose

Beginning in mid-August, customers and visitors will be invited to decorate paper coffee cups, for a small donation. All proceeds will benefit Art Road, a local non-profit that brings art class back to schools that have lost their art curriculum and will be on display during DDF and the month of September.

This project is inspired by Gwyneth Leech: The Cup Drawings (www.gwynethsfullbrew.com)
