Sun King Annual Community Giving 2017


Monday, November 27, 2017

After Sun King first opened in 2009, owners and employees wanted to stay true to a variety of causes, including good beer and active community involvement. Here we are in 2017, arguably recognized as Indiana’s beer, having supported over 500 nonprofits throughout Indianapolis. Our core philanthropies throughout the years have focused on community improvement, the arts, youth development programs and affordable housing and shelter. In supporting these philanthropies, Sun King has made close to a million dollars in in-kind and monetary donations. Sun King loves nothing more than to give back to the community that encourages and develops the passions of Hoosiers. Join us in raising a glass to the organizations that make our communities a better place to live.
