buy-a-lady-a-drink-2On April 16 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., at the beautiful vantage point of the Annapolis Maritime Museum, Annapolis Green, Katcef Brothers, and invited guests will celebrate the 45th annual Earth day, both locally and globally.

Together they will launch their focus locally, about clean water and the ecology and heritage of Chesapeake country. Globally, they will join together with Stella Artois and water.org to “Buy a Lady a Drink” to drive awareness of the global water crisis and help provide solutions. Every day, women around the world spend a combined 200 million hours collecting clean water for their families. ‘Buy a Lady a Drink’ aims to help put a stop to these water-collecting journeys, so women can start new journeys of their own.

Stella Artois recently made a donation of $1.2 million to Water.org and is now inviting consumers to join the cause by purchasing limited-edition Chalices. One Chalice will help Water.org provide five years of clean water to one person in the developing world. Beyond purchasing a Chalice, consumers will also be able to learn more about the Stella Artois ‘Buy a Lady a Drink’ campaign, the partnership with Water.org, and stories of women directly impacted by the global water crisis. More information is available at http://www.BuyALadyADrink.com.

“We’re honored to be joining forces with Katcef and Stella Artois, a premier global brand that has stepped up to support Water.org and help us raise awareness of the water crisis, and to emphasize the local importance of clean water to our the ecology and heritage of the Chesapeake,” said Elvia Thompson, co-founder of Annapolis Green.

“We are proud to join Stella and Water.org here in Annapolis to help raise awareness of the global water crisis that affects more than 750 million people around the world, and support Water.org’s efforts through donations and the sale of these stunningly-designed Chalices,” said Neal Katcef of Katcef Brothers Companies. “I am also very proud of our efforts locally, to keep Annapolis Green and the importance of clean water here in our city and surrounding bay.”

The three unique and beautifully designed Chalices were inspired by traditional handcrafted objects from three of the developing countries where Water.org operates, including textiles from India, baskets from Ethiopia and pottery from Honduras. Consumers can purchase the Chalices at Amazon.com in the United States.

Please join for this launch of our local and global social impact campaign here in Annapolis at the Maritime Museum. The reception will feature appetizers by Baroak Cookhouse & Taproom, and Julie St. Marie Catering/Event Coordination. Stella Artois and Stella Cidre, and other beverages will be served and a complimentary Stella Artois Chalice Keepsake will be presented to guests, while supplies last. As always, enjoy responsibly.
