What is a bar crawl? A bar crawl is typically a huge group of participants visiting multiple bars in a single afternoon/evening for a good cause! Participants make a donation to the cause and receive a t-shirt for the event. Everyone wearing the t-shirt during the designated time at participating bars may receive food and drink specials.
Our first bar crawl was held in June 2014 to raise funds to build an inclusive school in Opucet Village, Uganda. On July 1, 2014 we broke ground for the school and the foundation was laid. In May 2015 we had a second bar crawl to build the walls of the school. The 2015 Bar Crawl was a huge success too. The beam and roof were next to be installed and we were learning a lot about building practices in Uganda.
At this point, over 200 students were attending the Silver Memorial Inclusive Learning and Education Center (SMILE). Finally in May 2016 we hosted our 3rd bar crawl and with the help of the Penn Hills Rotary, we were able to complete the school by installing the roof! We're pretty sure that this is the only school in Uganda that was built by bar crawls.
