This is our 6th Collect Your Tabs Contest, benefitting the Ronald McDonald House of Indiana!
We challenge you, fans of Fresh•Local•Beer, to collect aluminum tabs, of all types and turn them in for prizes. Join forces with your co-workers, family, and friends to collect as many aluminum tabs (beer, soda, energy drinks, canned water) as you can now until July 8th, 2017.
We ask that all collected tabs to be turned in on Saturday, July 8th at either of our Sun King locations (Downtown Indy or Fishers Tap Room). Those who have participated will be awarded various Sun King prizes (see below). The bounty of collected tabs will be dropped off at the Pop Tab Drop on Monument Circle on Friday, July 14th and then the Ronald McDonald House recycle all collected tabs!
Why Should You Collect Can Tabs?
Not only is the can tab important for the purpose of opening your favorite Fresh•Local•Beer, it is also a valuable resource that generates much-needed funds to cover the operating costs to run the Ronald McDonald House to support families in need. Don't forget to recycle your cans too - that is important for our environment!
Fun Facts about Tabs:
1 foot = 12 pop tabs
1 mile = 63,360 pop tabs
What does the Ronald McDonald House of Indiana do?
Nearly 5,000 families are served at the House each year while their children receive life-saving treatments at Indianapolis-area hospitals, including Riley Children's Hosiptal. Over one billion tabs have been donated since the program began in 1995, generating about $700,000 in revenue. The Ronald McDonald House focuses on those families with a critically ill or injured child. The House is the only organization in Central Indiana that provides low-cost, short-term-to-long-term lodging for these families.
Fund received from the recycled tabs adds up to $30-$50K annually. These funds go towards the operating costs of the Ronald McDonald House and will cover the costs of operating 3 rooms in the House for an entire year.
How Can You Help?
Help Sun King collect tabs by participating in the Save Your Tabs Challenge now until July 8th, 2017. Sun King will continue to collect tabs at various community events around town. Be sure to drop off your collected tabs on Saturday, July 8th, at either Sun King location. We will weigh your tabs and reward you with prizes, and then we’ll deliver the collective bounty of tabs to the Ronald McDonald House where it will go to help those in need.
Reminders: Please do not use plastic soda bottles or milk jugs because they’re hard to empty! Keep in mind if the tab sticks to a magnet, it cannot be used. Please check your tabs from soup and other cans - some are aluminum and can be used; others are steel and cannot.
