As the Ballard neighborhood grows and transforms, there is an ever-pressing need to maintain a sense of community. The number one question the Ballard Alliance receives from our members and neighbors is “how do I become more involved in my community?” More than ever, there are people living in the neighborhood looking for ways to meet people and have a positive impact on the neighborhood and surrounding communities.

The Ballard Alliance and Sustainable Ballard are partnering up once again to host an event that offers our Ballard residents, business owners and their employees a chance to meet one another and learn more about the ways in which they can become more involved and engaged in the Ballard Community. Please join us for an evening to mix, mingle and share a pint with your neighbors and local non-profits on Wednesday, September 19th, 2018 from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. at Lucky Envelope Brewing. There will be a complementary beverage for the first 100 guests. Bring a neighbor or two!

A special thanks to our sponsors for helping us host this event! Sustainable Ballard | Lucky Envelope Brewing | Grove and Kane | New Seasons Market | KAVU | Verity Credit Union | Visit Ballard
