The event raised $9,102 for Sprouts Cooking Club. Sprouts is using the money to put three students through their Chef-in-Training program—a culinary-training program that provides disadvantaged youth the opportunity to turn their lives around and secure a job in the restaurant industry by learning essential cooking skills under the tutelage of some of the best chefs in the Bay Area.
Bison is currently raising money for another philanthropic initiative called The Beer Wagon—a 501(c)3 pending beverage truck that will donate 100% of its profits to like-minded local charities, like Sprouts.
