Please join us on Saturday, December 1 from 2-10pm at Fire & Hops Gastropub in Santa Fe for their Taps Takeover event. A portion of the event’s proceeds will benefit the New Mexico Center on Law and Poverty. As Albuquerque’s Bosque Brewing takes over the taps and Fire & Hops serves up delicious food specials, the Center will be discussing our advocacy. We will also be giving away two day passes to Meow Wolf to a lucky attendee! We hope to see you there!
Last month, we celebrated at Hotel Albuquerque by raising a glass with Kim Posich. As the New Mexico Center on Law and Poverty’s Executive Director, Kim dedicated himself to increasing opportunities for low-income New Mexicans. It was wonderful to see so many of Kim’s friends, family, and colleagues come together to recognize the inspirational leadership of our long-time Executive Director.
Thanks to everyone who attended the event!
Thanks again to our generous event sponsors!
