You know who really knows how to party? People who plan parties. People who plan wedding parties. Wedding vendors. They know how to party—for a good cause, with sophistication and grace, and with all-out abandon.

The wedding vendors who donate their time and talent to put Get Hitched Give Hope together each year also organize Hope Brew, a pre-GHGH effort to raise even more money for their featured charities.

This year's Hope Brew party is set for Thursday, May 15 from 6:30 to 10 at the Foundry, the south SoDo neighborhood outpost of Herban Feast—the folks who do the very popular SoDo Park.

At the Foundry you'll find such fine local brews as Hilliards, Seattle Cider, Stoup Brewing, and more. And, of course, paired bites, great decor and entertainment, and raffle prizes for stuff like, well, beer.

And all the proceeds generated go to the Dream Foundation and Young Survival Coalition.

You can find out more on the Hope Brew Facebook page, and you can score tickets here.
