Fall is here...bringing us tailgating, bonfires, announcing the start to many of our holiday gatherings. As we come together to celebrate with friends, family, and loved ones, Sun King challenges you to collect your tabs!
Our fourth installment of the Sun King Collect Your Tabs Challenge, benefitting the Ronald McDonald House of Indiana, encourages fans of Fresh•Local•Beer to collect aluminum tabs, of all types. We challenge you, your co-workers, family, and friends to collect as many aluminum tabs (beer, soda, energy drinks, canned water) as you can from October 30th, 2015 - January 9th, 2016. All tabs will be turned in at Sun King Brewery on January 9th and those who have participated will be awarded various Sun King prizes. All collected tabs will be dropped off to the Ronald McDonald House to be recycled.
Why Should You Collect Can Tabs?
Not only is the can tab important for the purpose of opening your favorite "Pint in Every Can", 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 lbs = 1,000 Tabs
• 1,000 lbs = 1 Million Tabs
What does the Ronald McDonald House of Indiana do?
Nearly 1,500 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 in 15 years since the program began, generating about $500,000 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 from October 30th, 2015 - January 9th, 2016. Sun King will continue to collect tabs at various community events around town and on Saturday, January 9th, we ask that you stop by the brewery to drop off your collected tabs. 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!
